Person's Name

The longest name to date is Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Jack Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorft Senior

The longest one-word name is of a young Hawaiian boy named Kananinoheaokuuhomeopuukaimanaalohilo. The name means "The Beautiful Aroma of My Home at Sparkling Diamond Hill is Carried to the Eyes of Heaven". In Hawaii, it is the custom to give children long, descriptive names. Dont worry though, they call him Joe, of all things, for short.

Place Name

The longest place name is the actual name of the city Bangkok, in Thailand :

sinmahintarayudyayamahadilopono-

paratanarajthaniburiromudomrajni-

wesmahasatarnamornpimarnavatarsa-

titsakattiyavisanukamphrasit (155 letters)

This translates to "The land of angels, the great city of immortality, of divine gems, the great angelic land unconquerable land of nine noble gems, the royal city, a pleasant capital place of the Royal Palace, eternal land of angels and reincarnated spirits predestined and created by the highest Devas."
