A woman in the US has got the world’s longest name. She was named by her mother with the unusually long name to be unique and to enter into the Guinness Book of World Records.
She is however called Jamie by her family and friends and her 1019 letters long name has made her birth certificate 2 feet long and has got her into the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest name.
Jamie was born in September 1984 and after her parents named her with the unconventional name, a law was passed in Texas that allowed only names that fit within the ‘name’ box on the birth certificate form.
Jamie literally had to struggle to memorize her birth name. She had to record her name on tape and play it repeatedly to memorize it.
