What's in a Name? Woman With World's Longest Name Experiences Problems

A woman from the UK has discovered that having a 161-word name can be a little problematic after she changed her name to a more-than-a-mouthful moniker for the sake of her pet charity.

The lady, née Dawn McManus of Hartlepool, England, legally changed her name to a jaw-dropping:

She did so to bring attention to her charity Red Dreams, which encourages children to be creative by participating in the Arts.

But, as you might imagine, having a 161 word name with 1,055 letters can be a bit daunting, especially when applying for a new bank card or trying to renew your passport!

On further note, her status as the person with the longest name in the UK is already in peril, as the former record holder has threatened to change his name again to something longer so he can reclaim the title!
