How would you pronounce a 666-letter personal name? Good luck trying.

The complications of the world are bigger than what we think. Just imagine the stress of pronouncing names. While some are weird, some might make you wonder how, on earth, did parents fabricate such names. Certain ones will make you understand why children are first taught words with two, three or four letters; you have to break them down before getting the whole nomenclature. Whenever we think we have seen it all, surprises have a way of reaching us. How could just a single name contain more than 10 letters?

The record is there to beat, but until then, the world longest name is just absurd. His name contains only-God-knows number of characters. He was a German, typesetter and, of course, a world record holder. The name contain 27 names, each of the 26 names begins with the letters of the alphabet in the right order. We were not around when he lived, but we are sure people loved to go by "Hubert" and where it required a surname, they used "Wolfeschlegelsteinhausen-bergerdorff". 

Secretaries and announcers have really suffered. If you make a mistake in this case, how would you even recognize? Like I said earlier, good luck trying. Here is his full name. If you are lazy too, just try the surname.
