When someone has to think of a pseudonym for themselves, an oddly popular choice is their own name, but written backwards. You'd expect them to be more imaginative, and smart enough to realize that such a pseudonym can easily give away your true identity. Sure enough, most of the time someone notices, often by exclaiming "(Saila Sdrawckab) spelled backwards is (Backwards Alias)!"

* A variant in ''{{Holes}}:'' Stanley Yelnats (who has an actual SdrawkcabName himself) is sent to a juvenile detention camp where everyone uses a nickname. He assumes the lead boy, X-Ray, was named because of his glasses; it turns out it's actually his real name, Rex, in {{Pig Latin}}.
