Anagram time!

Similar to Anagrams: From Food to Food, but this time its From Cheese to Sneeze, or (almost) Anything You Please.

Brief:

You must turn the names of cheeses into common nouns using anagrams

The rules:

  • You may not use a computer to do the anagrams (researching the names of cheeses online is fine).
  • You must use single-word names to make single-word answers; hyphenated words are not allowed.
  • Common spelling must be used (your local spelling is fine), using alternate spelling to make a word work is not allowed.
  • Slang and abbreviations are not allowed.

Allowances:

  • Pluralisation is fine

Examples:

Edam <———> Dame goes; Edam <———> Made does not because 'made' is not a common noun.

Brie <———> Bier works

Have fun!

    $\begingroup$ As a matter of curiosity, why are answers hidden for this question? If no-one peeks you'll just get many of the same answers repeatedly. If I wanted to find a novel one, I'd have to peek at them all. $\endgroup$ – chasly from UK Nov 19 '18 at 11:17

    $\begingroup$ just a remark: there really is no way to check if someone used a computer or not $\endgroup$ – Ivo Beckers Nov 19 '18 at 13:33
  • $\begingroup$ Are the anagrams allowed to be more than one word if the cheese is just the one word? $\endgroup$ – FrazzleUK Nov 19 '18 at 14:25

The three easier ones I could think of are:

Comte -> Comet
Munster -> Sternum
Feta -> Feat\Fate [Which I see WAF found first]

And after going over an extensive cheese list as suggested, I spotted these too:

Geitost -> Egotist
Greve -> Verge
Kasseri -> Kaisers
Madrona -> Roadman
Mascare\Mascares -> Cameras\Massacre
Minuet -> Minute
Molbo -> Bloom
Mona -> Moan
Moonglo -> Monolog
Ragstone -> Negators
Ricotta -> Citator
Romano -> Maroon
Serat -> Tears [and lots more]
Toma -> Atom
Ubriaco -> Caribou

...And I posted some more of these in the food into food challenge.

  • $\begingroup$ IIRC, Maroon is an adjective. $\endgroup$ – Hosch250 Nov 19 '18 at 16:11
  • $\begingroup$ @Hosch250 Well, color names can also function as nouns, depending on the context. But even if they can't, the word also means an escaped slave or a castaway. $\endgroup$ – Walt Nov 19 '18 at 16:20

    $\begingroup$ Ah, right; I missed that connotation. You got my upvote, anyway :) $\endgroup$ – Hosch250 Nov 19 '18 at 16:44

goat <———> toga

I borrowed your arrow.

blue <———> lube I don't know if that counts as an abbreviation.
feta <———> fate/feat
parmesan <———> spearman

My domain knowledge is pretty limited. It basically consists of this list.

    $\begingroup$ Great work! I thought hard about lube before; it is an abbreviation of lubricant, however many dictionaries seem to almost treat it as a word. Personally I feel that it does not count, but if anyone feels different I'll be happy to let it slide. As for cheese names, www.cheese.com has a great list. $\endgroup$ – hat Nov 19 '18 at 16:38

Parmesan:

spearman

Are hyphens allowed? Camembert:

cat-member (either a cat's body part, or maybe a feline individual who's part of an organization)

  1. passendale <———> esplanades

  2. sirene <———> serine

  3. esrom <———> morse

  4. orda <———> road

Apparently timelotem (an anagram of mimolette) is an antipsychotic drug.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wouldn't that be a proper noun, not a common noun? $\endgroup$ – hat Nov 21 '18 at 8:04
