Year End Filler: Erol Otus Anagrams

I was wandering around Wikipedia the other day and found myself reading up on everyone's favorite TSR illustrator of the early 80s who isn't Tramp, although maybe we don't even need to mention Tramp in that timeframe as--other than Wormy--his work is pretty much absent from TSR publications after 1979.

Anyway, EO's wiki states that there's a drow artist referenced in a TSR module (A4?) whose name is "Ool Eurts" which is a tribute to--and anagram of--Erol Otus. My first thought was, "Ool Eurts? That's the best you could do?" So I started messing around with the dude's name, coming up with names like Etru Sool, Sulteroo, Ros Leotu, etc. which led to this "It's December and I need 4 more posts to quell the Baleful Gods of Blogger OCD" post. So enjoy these anagrams and feel free to provide more of your own.
