My first name (Jordan) is exceptionally easy for this kind of thing:

A capital J to a rounded n
A tailed o to an a with a shortened stem
A curlicue r to a slightly open d

It made things kind of boring when my classmates discovered ambigrams and spent the better part of study hall puzzling out a way of making their own names work.

Scott Kim is a master of this (he made the cube sgi logo but not the sun one, Vaughn Pratt did that)
