** She also loves doing this in her ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novels, especially concerning Romulans -- sorry, Literature/{{Rihannsu}}. ''The Romulan Way'' features a Romulan Commander named Ael i-Mhiessan t'Rllaillieu, and a Federation agent going by the name Arrhae ir-Mnaeha t'Khellian. To make things even worse, the poor woman's ''Human'' name is Terise Haleakala-[=LoBrutto=]. And now my fingers have cramped up.

* Clennen Mendakersson in ''Literature/TheDalemarkQuartet'' is self-admittedly fond of long names, and thinks his own and his wife's are too short. So he made up for it with his children and his horse: Dastgandlen Handagner Clennensson, Cennoreth Manaliabrid Clennensdaughter, Osfameron Tanamoril Clennensson, and Barangarolob. Dagner, Brid, Moril, and Olob for short.

** From ''Literature/LordVorpatrilsAlliance'': Tej, whose full name when she enters the story is Akuti Tejaswini Jyoti ghem Estif Arqua. [[spoiler:It gets even longer when she married Ivan Vorpatril]]. Her father found a book entitled ''Ten Thousand Authentic Ethnic Baby Names From Old Earth, Their Meanings and Geographical Origins'' and was apparently attempting to use as many of them as possible on his children. They have half a dozen each, which they boiled down to a nickname.

* ''Hadschi Halef Omar Ben Hadschi Abul Abbas Ibn Hadschi Dawuhd al Gossarah'', a character in the Kara Ben Nemsi books of German author Creator/KarlMay.
** He is normally just called Hadschi (Hajji) Halef Omar, but reciting his full name is a shibboleth among readers. If you can't pass the "Hadschi Halef test" you're not a true Karl May fan.
** The name is long enough for the chorus of the Music/DschinghisKhan song "Hadschi Halef Omar" to consist of little more.
