What is an Anagram?
Anagrams are words that are formed by rearranging all the letters within another word or phrase. A single word or phrase can have multiple anagrams. Probably the most famous example of an anagram is the word "anagram" itself. Rearranged it spells "nag a ram", which is quite humorous when painting the picture in your head.
If you ever tried finding anagrams yourself, you probably had a hard time doing so. After all, the English language consists of over 170,000 words, so thinking of possible combinations is tricky. Solving anagrams in a short amount of time is hard to master, and those who did are commonly referred to as "anagrammatists".
Why are Anagrams so popular?
First and foremost, they are fun. Did you know that something such as "real fun" can turn into something so morbid like "funeral"? And apparently, good old "Santa" can turn into "Satan". Or did you know that a "true lady" can turn to "adultery"? It's ridiculous.
Some of the examples above might terrify you, because they seem to be so non-arbitrary. You are not alone; it is believed that anagram solving dates back to as far as the ancient Greeks. They apparently thought names of people or buildings had hidden, mystical meanings just because you could form anagrams from them.

Fun fact about unscramble words
Did you know that solving an anagram is the first step in a word unscrambler algorithm? While unscrambling requires you to potentially form smaller words from a rack of tiles, anagram solving only requires you to form words that have the same length as the amount of tiles on the rack.
You should definitely check out our Word Unscrambler. It is the fastest tool for unscrambling words for Scrabble or Words with Friends currently out there, as we use a highly optimized algorithm. However, that doesn't stop MoreWords from being versatile as well. You can group your results by length or first letter and exclude or require certain letters.
As a bonus, you can enter up to a total of sixty (!) characters without sacrificing loading speed. Most of the competing tools on the web don't even support more than twenty characters and are magnitudes of four to eight slower than us. Don't blame us if you become addicted to MoreWords!
