Senior

BUT WAIT! Breaking news on the database development front. The longest name in England.

The United Kingdom's Deed Poll Service has said that a 23-year-old James Bond Fan has a 69-word name, which is the longest in the country.

David Fearn has changed his name, to all 21 official 007 film titles.

He is now called, "James Dr No From Russia With Love Goldfinger Thunderball You Only Live Twice On Her Majesty's Secret Service Diamonds Are Forever Live And Let Die The Man With The Golden Gun The Spy Who Loved Me Moonraker For Your Eyes Only Octopussy A View To A Kill The Living Daylights Licence To Kill Golden Eye Tomorrow Never Dies The World Is Not Enough Die Another Day Casino Royale Bond."

James, of Walsall, Staffordshire told Ananova news, "I wanted to be James Bond and now I am. It's the ultimate fantasy."

The survey of the British birth certificates also found 36 boys and girls in the U.K. have been named "Arsenal."

Football stars are also a common inspiration for names, according to the survey of Findmypast.com. At least three boys were given the first names "David Beckham" and 28 "Brooklyn" after his eldest son. Another 29 were named "Gazza."

It also said that golf fans have named 1,191 sons "Tiger" while some sports fans preferred brand names. Two children were called "Reebox" and three named "Adidas."

Popular movies were also an inspiration as six boys were given the first name of "Gandalf," one named "Harry Potter," and two boys called "Superman."

Spokeswoman Sarah Malone said, "It seems many of us are happy to take hero worship to a whole new level, naming our children after the stars we admire."

What freaks, what complete and utter freaks.

That James Bond man is clearly the biggest geek ever, while the parents who named their kids Gandalf and Superman are just sadistic. And I think we can safely say the Reebok and Adidas parents are chavs.

The only one I have any time for is the alphabetised one: I'm sure the joke will tire soon enough but I still enjoy their attitude that a life time of bullying for their child is a small price to pay for a few giggles for them. Its not like he can even shorten that to just his first and last names - he'd still be called Adolph Zeus, a humliating name by anyone's standards (bar perhaps Gandalf's).

And this:
Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorffvoralternwarengewissenhaf

zenvonangereifenduchihrraubgiriigfeindewelchevorralternzwolf

is just unneccessary.

Bet his classmates were happy, the resister would have taken till lunchtime.

Also did you know that Los Angeles' real name is:

El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de
Porciúncula


Which roughly translates as:

The Town of Our Lady the Queen of Angels of the Little Portion

I'll stick with LA.

And Bangkok in Thiland is actually called:

Krungthepmahanakonbowornratanakosinmahintarayudyayamahadilop
onoparatanarajthaniburiromudomrajniwesmahasatarnamornpimarna
vatarsatitsakattiyavisanukamphrasit


WOW! and I've just found that ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead's original name was:

The Clouds That Fondle Jagged Crags And Raging Storms
Conspire And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead


I heart the internet.

Anything that includes the word 'fondle' gets my vote.
