A woman in the US has won a battle to have her full name put on her driving licence. Wait for it, wait for it...
... here's the name:
Hawaii government computer systems are to be upgraded by the end of the year, allowing her to have her full name on her driving licence and ID card, the current system allowed just 35 characters.
Ms Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele says that her name has many layers of meanings including "one who would stand up and get people to focus in one direction when there was chaos and confusion, and help them emerge from disorder". Sounds a bit redundant to me
She was unwilling to change the name back to her maiden name, which was way more compact: Worth.
I have to admit that I would want to change my name (my real one that is) because my family name is double-barrelled, my father and mother decided to combine their names into one after getting married. Needless to say the resulting name is quite long and it makes filling out forms time-consuming.
Would you change your name?
