If you think YOUR name’s too long…

janice long nameSome people have long names and others have chapters. Janice ‘Lokelani’ has bigger problems than that. She can’t go anywhere because her name doesn’t fit on an ID. ‘Lokelani’ is actually her shortened last name by 27 letters (Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele). Her last name is 35 letters long and itself doesn’t fit on any government ID, which only allow 36 characters in all.

She’s Polynesian and lives in Hawaii and is stuck there because there’s no way for her full name to be put on any documents. How about giving her a spelling test to prove who she is?  I know I’d give up after the 3rd letter!
