Does Anything Rhyme With “Orange”?

Well, we’re going to keep this one short.

The rumor that orange doesn’t rhyme with any other word is (unfortunately?) incorrect.

What rhymes with orange?

Orange rhymes with Blorenge  (a mountain in Wales) and sporange (a technical word for a sac where spores are made).

Of course, if you want to write a rhyming poem about oranges, the scientific or geographic research involved might be a little tough.

What rhymes with silver?

While we’re at it, while silver hangs on to the same rumor, it actually rhymes with Wilver (a nickname) and chilver (a ewe lamb).

Are there any words without rhymes?

Don’t worry, we’ll leave you with some trivia to whip out at your next social gathering … or are we the only word nerds that do that?

Bulb comes from the Ancient Greek word for onion, bolbas. In the early 1800s, the word was applied to scientific instruments of a similar shape, including the thermometer bulb and the light bulb. It still hasn’t found a word to rhyme with though.

And, then there’s the rhymeless angel, which comes from the Greek word, angelos, which meant “messenger of God.”

Finally, the common -th ending takes on many different pronunciations, but the one used for the word month renders it without a rhyming partner.
