    Default Happy Rotter

    I 've always wished to make a study( psy-sociological, cultural) on Harry Potter. Every relevant analysis will be welcomed.
    Has anybody ever found the anagram Happy rotter ? or Am I the first ?

    Sadly, Chomat - you haven't - Harry Potter only has one "p".

    Yes I am a hapless man but orally speaking, the anagram works.

    Technically an anagram must contain exactly the letters in the original. What you have is a "soundalike".
