And I thought SI names were long

What do you think of these words:
Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Joseph Sylvester Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg
Well its not a name of the members attending a summit, but the name of 1 single person “Germany’s new economic minister”

I think he can beat all South Indians, hands down, when it comes to length of the name.

– Thanks to Satya for pointing this interesting info to me.

  1. The German minister’s name is long but there are many short words which are easily pronounceable. A long name technically should be one word that is really long like – Venkataramanamuthukrishnamathrubhutheswaran, who incidentally had a twin sister named Venkataramanamuthukrishnamathrubhutheswari!!!
