The Anagram Challenge

Who doesn’t love a good anagram? They’re so much fun to solve! Occasionally, anagrams find their way into literature. Potterheads are surely reading this and thinking of the following scene: (1)

Shakespeare fans are likely thinking of Cordelia from King Lear. Her name was formed by combining “cor” (which is Latin for “heart”) and “delia” (which is an anagram of “ideal”). Hence, her name revealed that she was the daughter with the ideal heart.

Since I’m somewhat fascinated by anagrams–and by somewhat I mean unequivocally–I turned one of my characters’ names from Capering on Glass Bridges into one. Can you guess which name I’m referring to? Bingo! It’s Tulip Filira.

What, then, is Tulip Filira an anagram of? you might be asking. I’m not telling. Instead, I challenge you all to figure it out! 😀 The first person to successfully do so will receive a copy of the sequel to Capering on Glass Bridges as soon as it is released. For those who would like to try solving the anagram, please see below.

Tips/Pertinent Information

  • You may make as many guesses as you’d like.
  • Type your guesses in this post’s comment section.
  • The correct solution contains exactly two words.
  • The second word is shorter than the first word.
  • The first word begins with the letter “P.”
  • Some letters from “Filira” appear in the solution’s first word.
  • The solution tells you something about Tulip’s character–as was the case with Cordelia and the phrase from which her name was taken.

Good luck to you all!
