One of the longest known I had known is the name of my classmate in college – Maria Leonora Theresa delos Reyes. I thought that’s already long until I encounter the list of names below.

slamdlichfreudeundruhemitnichteinfurch…rintlligentgeschopfsvonhinzwischenster…, Senior

This is the longest name ever given to a human. He had a Christian name for every letter in the alphabet. His name shortened to Mr. Wolfe Plus 585 Sr. This is the world’s longest name officially used by a person. The name belongs to a German immigrant to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Some peculiar names…

1.) Brfxxxccxxmncccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116

This is quite bizarre! Can you read it? It was a name given by a Swedish woman to his child, as a protest to the hard naming laws of Sweden. BTW, it’s pronounced “Albin”.

2.) Mr. Yellow Rat Foxysquirrel Fairydiddle

This name belongs to a man from England, UK. He officially changed his name into this.

An avid fan of James Bond took the names of every James Bond movie for his kid. Quantum of Solace was not included because he was born before the movie but it will probably be added so that his full name will be “James (All the Film Titles+ Quantum of Solace) Bond”.

Longest Song Titles…

1.) Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With A Pict

This is a Pink Floyd song. You might say this is already long for a song title but it’s not quite.

2.) She Was Waiting For Her Mother At The Station In Torino, And You Know I Love You Baby, But It's Getting Too heavy To Laugh

This long song title is by the singer/songwriter Shawn Phillips from his album “Second Contribution”.

3.) I'm a Cranky Old Yank in a Clanky Old Tank on the Streets of Yokohama with my Honolulu Mama Doin? Those Beat-o, Beat-o Flat-On-My-Seat-o, Hirohito Blues

This 1945 song by Hoagy Carmichael is recognized by the Guinness book of World Records as one of the longest song title in the world.

The Sad But True Story Of Ray Mingus, The Lumberjack Of Bulk Rock City, And His Never Slacking Stribe In Exploiting The So Far Undiscovered Areas Of The Intention To Bodily Intercourse From The Opposite Species Of His Kind, During Intake Of All The Mental Condition That Could Be Derived From Fermentation

This is one of the longest song titles in the world. This song belongs to the Swedish group named ‘Rednex’. It contains 52 words and 305 characters.

Subtitled: A Musical Apology

This very long song title is from the album ‘Future Fossils’ by Christine Lavin. It contains 97 words and 478 characters. It should be noted that the words “Subtitled: A Musical Apology” at the end part are part of the song title. But even if these are omitted, this song title is still the longest.

Longest Book Title…

1.) The History of the Wars of New-England with the Eastern Indians; or, a Narrative of Their Continued Perfidy and Cruelty, from the 10th of August, 1703, to the Peace Renewed 13th of July, 1713. And from the 25th of July, 1722, to Their Submission 15th December, 1725, Which Was Ratified August 5th, 1726
