Hi, i am currently writing a javascript function to validate a first names form field. The following criteria are needed:

- longest first name ever (in characters, - and ' count too, sofar i got a guess at 20 characters)
- shortest first name (i think 2 is the shortest, Jo and Mo, etc.)
- most consecutive vowels in a first name (i believe its 3, but i stand under correction)
- most consecutive consonants in a first name (i believe its 3, but i stand under correction)
- most consecutive symbols in a first name (i believe its 1, but i stand under correction)
- most first names a person has on this planet (well according to your site it's 4, which is where it is at the moment)

- the list of consonants: BCÇDÐFGHJKLMNÑPQRSßTVWXYÝZbcçdfghjklmnñpqrstvwxyýÿz
- the list of vowels: AEIOUaeiouÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÒÓÔÕÖØÙÚÛÜàáâãäæèéêëìíîïðòóôõöøùúûü
- the list of symbols: '-

i stand under correction for the 3 though...

please, i require the help of someone who knows etymology very well. And preferably rather soon.

thanks in advance,
Pierre du Toit
