I played this as a teenager with my family, we called it the Alphabet Game and this is how it works:

 

On the left side I typed HealingwellLymeForum and on the right the Alphabet without the vowels.

 

Take any set of initials and if you can think of any famous person, actor, actress, writer, politician, inventor, any one famous with those initials, type it in.  The more names for the same set of initials, the better.  Not a contest, just for fun, LOL!

 

HB:  Harry Belafonte,

NH:

GJ:

I don't think anyone famous has a name with the initials RX so I found this even though it's kind of cheating!

Owen Wilson, great actor!  I loved him in "You Me and Dupree" when he found his "ness" LOL!
 
Wow, these set of initials are really difficult so I am going to cheat.  Maybe I should have reversed the alphabet with Healingwell..
