I don't know if the following is what you are looking for, but here goes:
On Oprah one day a few years ago, this girl and her mom were on the show because the daughter had the longest name in the world at the time, according to The Guiness Book of World Records. Her mom wanted to give her girl an unusual name that nobody could or would ever try to name thier child. So she combine something like 60 names end to end and had to request an additional piece of paper to fit it all on.
The poor girl had to listen to a tape recording of her mother saying her name in order for her to learn it. Oddly enough, she went by the first name in the series, and it was something common like Mary.
Because of this case, the hospital people went to court or something and it is now a law in whatever state she lives in that in naming your child, the name must fit on the origional page of the birth certificate. Details and specifics are lacking, I know, but as I said it was several years ago that I watched this show.
