Mena Mega (NAME GAME)

Many thanks to Denise Davis, who e-mailed me this game!

Take the letters in your name (first, last, whatever works) and scramble them to form a new word. Then make up a definition of your new word which describes you. For example, the name "Denise" can become "siende". "Siende" in this case meant understanding, because Denise felt she had a knack for understanding what others are trying to say, and rephrasing their words so everyone else can understand, too. The group can then share what their new names mean.
