Woman Wins Battle Over 35 Letter Surname

6 posts in this topic

A woman in Hawaii with a 35-letter surname has persuaded the island's authorities to change their ID card and driving licence formats because her long name will not fit.

Janice "Lokelani" Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele said she would never consider using a shortened version, and so used the media to urge officials to take action.

Good for her, if that's her name then they should respect it and let her use it.

I wonder what that means in Hawaiian.....anybody from Hawaii here?

It means 'person with a stupid name', according to my Hawaiian sources.

It really does seem silly to me. just change your name legally, and go by the name you want.

It's why I make my coworkers and loved ones call my Lord SKeptic the 8th
