* In Creator/AndreNorton's early novel ''The Prince Commands'' there's "Michael Karl Johann Stefan Rene Eric Marie, Prince and Lord of Rein, First Lord of the Kingdom, Duke of Casnov, Count of Urnt, Baron of Kelive," (plus several others, including colonelcy of three different units), newly informed of his royal heritage and usually referred to or addressed simply as "Michael Karl." The family name, although ''not included in that recitation'', is Karloff. [[spoiler: (Some of his titles may have gone away when it turned out his cousin the Crown Prince wasn't dead after all. But then, he might have gotten them back after the Crown Prince became King.)]]

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster's novel ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' features "Caspar di Lorca di l'Omollia di los Enansas Giterxos", more usually known as "Caz". A city councilor in the sequel goes by the name of Millevoddevareen. Ironically, his associate Mudge accuses the hero, Jonathan Thomas Meriweather, of having an excessively long name and insists on calling him "Jon-Tom".
** Also by Foster, ''The End of the Matter'' features a goofy-looking mad alien that claims to be named Abalamahalamatandra. In ''Sentenced to Prism'', the protagonist meets a caterpillar-like creature named A Surface of Fine Azure-Tinted Reflection With Pyroxin Dendritic Inclusions.

* ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' has a few. And this is before you start tacking on [[KnightFever titles]] and military honors, which most of the examples have in spades.

** 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.
