I had to fact check this name before bringing it in, but it indeed real:

Paula St. John Lawrence Lawyer Bryne Strong Yeats Stevenson Callaghan Hunt Milne Thompson Shankley Bennet Paisley O'Sullivan


A girl named after a British football club in the sixties. You might have seen the hyundai ad. I've researched it, and it's real. Note that four of the names (Lawyer, Strong, Hunt, and Paisley) happen to just be words, too. I like that.

Slightly less crazy, but equally true:

Forest-Walker John-Murray Horsfall the Second.

We just called him Walker for short.

It got confusing because our science teacher was Mr. Walker.

"God. Walker's such an asshole."
"HEY!"
"Not you, the teacher."
"Oh, right. Yeah, he's an asshole."

The way Swedish works makes it possible to construct REALLY long compound words. Nordöstersjökustartilleriflygspaningssimulatoranläggningsmaterielunderhållsuppföljningssystemdiskussionsinläggsförberedelsearbeten is an example of such a word that really shouldn't exist and thankfully is never actually used. It is a real word though.

So it's a fancy word for the paper work related to the maintenance of a rather specific training simulator?
