Notes:
  • Some combinations will work better than others.  Some results may need a consonant or vowel added between the two elements to make them work.
  • While I did a modicum of research, these charts are meant to produce usable results rather than historical accuracy.  That being said, if you see anything that looks dopey to you, please speak up!
