If you look at it from the perspective that these three were Adamski's contacts, then their appearance at the very same conference at which Adamski revealed his artists impression of Orthon would mean that they were deliberately attempting to communicate their reality in a subtle, coded way to a minority of people paying attention.

There'd be no need for them to show up in person at the conference unless that was the goal, since according to Adamski, they had telepathic and remote viewing powers and the technology to monitor human affairs from afar.

With that in mind, it would seem logical to also encode clues to who they really were in the names.

Well my sister was a precocious child and among the believers in the group there sprang a rumor that she was an alien child! I'm sure there were any number of details they obsessed over in trying to figure out exactly who they were dealing with, many of which must have seemed to be solid evidence at the time (to them.)
Any more info on that? What happened to the cult? Was it a direct offshoot of the Adamski thing?

I know what you're getting at - you can find meaning anywhere if you want to - but in the case of the anagrams and etymology of the names I'm looking at, there's a sound and logical reason for doing it, since it's one of the only ways available to us to get a clearer sense if the story has merit, and if they really were aliens then they would have understood that and most likely impregnated the pseudonyms with clues.
