In a recent Word Ways article, "Celebrity One-Word Anagrams", the problem of finding famous (or even not-so-famous) people whose first and last names can be anagrammed into a single word was discussed. This raises questions of the form: how many people with N-letter combined names might we expect to encounter, in order to find one whose name is a single-word anagram? In this article I present some answers to this and other similar questions.
