Aka: [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Incredibly Long Name]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} to Have to Try and Say]].

In the broadest sense, whenever a character has more than the usual (in the Anglosphere) first, middle, and last name, they are in possession of an OverlyLongName. Also included are people who have the right number of names, but one or more of them is absurdly long, for example Ulla Inga Hansen-Bensen-Janson-Tallen-Hallen-Svaden-Swanson in the remake of ''Film/TheProducers''. (This is actually ''just'' her first name. They "[[TakeOurWordForIt don't have the time]]" to hear her last name.)

Can be used simply as a humor device, getting cheap laughs out of an absurd name; played to the extreme this would be a type of OverlyLongGag, being so long as to be tedious and thus deriving its humor; or it can be a non-joke to the audience because characters with strange names are expected in the type of show/book/planet/whatever, but cause the characters involved trouble as they try not to react to, or at least comment on, the oddity of the person's name.

If the character is not from around here, it might be an example of AsLongAsItSoundsForeign. If there is one normal name when all the others are are ridiculous, or vice versa, it can be AerithAndBob. In all cases, one of these makes for a good UnpronounceableAlias.

TruthInTelevision: There are too many actual people, places and things with absurdly long names - it's really better if you just go to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_word_in_English other wiki]], where there is a whole article dedicated to this. Doesn't that just simplify everything?

Compare EmbarrassingMiddleName, OverlyLongGag, SomeCallMeTim, TheUnpronounceable, SesquipedalianSmith, and TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard. Often results in FunWithAcronyms.

Related to LongTitle. A NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom will almost always be overly long.

* The Dickens spoof ''Radio/BleakExpectations'' featured a lawyer whose full name took 20 minutes to say. He charged by the hour, so "his name was his greatest asset". The show would either [[FadeToBlack fade out]] as he was saying his name, or he would be interrupted. His name began with Wyckham-Post-Forburton-...
* A song, possibly known as 'The Baby's Name', has which the chorus is: "The Baby's name is Kitchener-Carrington-Methuen-Kekewich-White-Cronje-Plumer-Powell-Majuba-Gatacre-Warren-Colenso-Kruger-Cape Town-Mafeking-French-Kimberley-Ladysmith-Bobs-The Union Jack-Fighting Mac-Lyddite-Pretoria-Blogs" or something to that effect.
* Doug Berman, the producer of ''CarTalk'', is referred to in the credits with an overly long succession of {{Embarrassing Nickname}}s. The longest version is "Doug 'the Subway Fugitive' 'Not-a-Slave-to-Fashion' 'Bongo Boy' 'Frog-Man' 'Punkin Lips' 'Cute-Cute-Cute' Berman".

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}'' gives you 'Tanaka Yuubiseiharukana' and [[spoiler:Tanaka Yuubiseiakikana in The Kid's route's.]]
** In Takeshi's route, when trying to think of a nickname for the Kid, Coco suggests "Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Hora Juan Novecino Marie de Los Remedios Siburiano de la Santessima Trinidado Luis Picasso". The Kid decides to just stick with "the Kid". (The scary thing is, this is based on the full name of PabloPicasso, which in RealLife was ''even longer'').
* In ''VisualNovel/LuckyDog1'', the protagonist is known as Giancarlo Bourbon del Monte. Since his full name is obviously quite a mouthful, he is more commonly known as Gian.
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'': Kud's full name is Kudryavka Anatolyevna Strugatskaya, which isn't too unusual for a Russian name but is very long to Japanese people. Though in a {{Deconstruction}}, Kud finds it kind of hurtful that people always laugh when they hear how overly dramatic her name sounds, and is quite touched when Riki doesn't.
* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' Kizuna, Kotohogushi-hen, Hanyuu's real name is [[spoiler:[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hanyuu_full_name_1069.jpeg Hai=ryuun Yeasomuul Jeda,]](yes, equals sign and all). Riku Furude, Hanyuu's lover, never could remember it/how to pronounce it, so he called her Hanyuu and it stuck.]]
