Actually the permitted steps are
1. add a letter, or
2. subtract a letter, or
3. CHANGE a letter. Yes, this is like doing 1 and 2 together, but that's the Rool, from the depths of antiquity.
Adherence is negotiable.
Rearranging is optional. Proper nouns aren't encouraged, but then they're not rejected either. Among the other "Table Rules" that have been acceptable is anagramming/rearranging without changing any letters, And it's always nice to have words that are "interesting" in some way.

[Candy - did you set this one up for me deliberately? grin }

Ha Wofa (maybe I did) and yes I did know that LOL of course
and did you read that the Platypus (well the male) has a poisonous claw which may be fatal to small animals but not humans, though its said to be very painful for as much as six months after a contact. They look such cute creatures in an 'Frankensteinish' sort of way!
