For fun, as a Pig Latin sort of thing, you can take the consonants of each word and cycle them against the vowels. For example, David Foster Wallace becomes:
Dadiv Rofset Ceawall
As you can see, I didn’t simply move the consonants. I was working by sound, rather than writing, and used the spelling of the word as I could. Had I simply moved them by writing, I’d’ve gotten “Cawlale”, which has appeal of its own, but I prefer to preserve as much of the phonetic content of the original as well as reasonable spelling to back it up. So I would pronounce “Ceawall” not like “SEA wall”, but as “SAH-wull”, retaining the vowel sounds from his actual last name.
