Da brotha's are gonna get you if you don't do that list by Wednesday. :)

I keep trying to think of ways to make the Master List more amenable, and Soundexing out all the similar-sounding names seemed like a plausible idea. (I've put back all the names consisting of 4 or fewer letters, BTW, coz I just couldn't bear to part names like with "Rose - Eros" and "Cher - Herc".)

But now I'm not so sure about the Soundexing idea. Because that automatically eliminates "Thanasi" (T520) from the "Shaitan" grouping, merely because there's already a "Tanisha" (T520) in there. And that also eliminates "Charis (C620) - Chrisa (C620)" and "Thais (T200) - Tisha (T200)". And I really *like* those entries.

I guess just eliminating all entries where the anagrammed names are basically just alternate spellings of each other makes the most sense.

I dunno. What do you suggest?
