You could't make it up

Post by Horus »

The other day I used a well known web site to compare car insurance premiums, yes you've guessed it! the one with the Meerkat :lol:
Today I received an email request to fill in a short survey on their services, I didn't bother, but when I looked at the sender it was Jesper With-Fogstrup WTF? I kid you not, his name was Jesper With-Fogstrup :ni: who the hell dreamed that one up? Alexander or Sergai? :lol: :lol:

He may be well known to you, but I am still trying to work out what a 'Jesper' is With or Without a 'Fogstrup' ;)

Sir

I don't see what the fuss is about.

Double-barreled surnames are not that unusual and typically link two families after marriage .

Dear Irma,
Thank you for your last post regarding double barrelled surnames which I believe were a means of preventing a particular name from becoming extinct due to there being no male heirs. Some like myself who belong to the upper, upper class have taken to using triple barrelled names as in Helena Bonham Carter or even multiple surnames as in Leone Sextus Denys Oswolf Fraudatifilius Tollemache-Tollemache de Orellana Plantagenet Tollemache-Tollemache

Only double-barrelled?

That's nothing.

The ex-MP for Luton was called Tarquin Fin-Tim-Lim-Bim-Lim-Bin-Bim-Bin-Bim-Bus-Stop-F'tang-F'tang-Ole-Biscuitbarrel.

3.David Fearn

Previously known as Barnaby Usansky, this man from Edinburgh held the record for the second longest name of a living person in years 2011-2012, with his 197-letters-long name. He once said: ”I don’t see a point in having a ridiculously long name, if it is not the longest name in the world”. We can definitely see some logic in that, however, Barnaby Usansky’s name was never even close to being world’s longest.

5.Pablo Picasso

Full name: ”Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso”
