ANTONYM - a word with the opposite meaning of some other word.
AUTONYM - a person's own name
ANANYM - a name formed by reversing another name
CHARACTONYM - a name of a fictional character that suggest the personality
traits of that character.
APTRONYM - a name that is absolutely suited to one's profession.
ANONYM - a false or assumed name
PSEUDONYM - a fictitious name

If any of you have somemore, please add to this list.

Hi! :D

How about:
SYNONYM - a word with the same or similar meaning to another word
HOMONYM - a word that looks the same but had a different meaning to another word (like=similar to; like=approve of/enjoy etc...)

These are probably on Phaedrus' list but thought I'd reply anyway!! 8)
