None of this seemed to bother George Garratt in the least. The 19-year-old British music school graduate was dissatisfied with his plain old name and has always desired to stand out. So that common moniker wasn’t going to cut it.
Last week, he paid about Cdn$20 for his identity to be legally changed through a special British online service.
But what the Somerset native is now known as has sparked a major family feud and caught the attention of the rest of the world.
The former George Garratt is thought to have the world’s longest name, which now reads: “Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined.”
He told the Telegraph newspaper in the United Kingdom that he chose superheroes as his theme because he wanted to be “unique.”
Many countries, including the United Kingdom, have laws prohibiting the use of ridiculous names. However, it appears that the majority of them are intended to deter parents from giving their newborns ridiculous names. If adults want to rechristen themselves, the laws may differ.
And that’s exactly what Garratt – er, Captain Fantastic – did.
According to the newspaper, Rhoshandiatellyneshiaunneveshenk Koyaanisquatsiuth Williams is the woman with the longest name in the United States. We’re hoping her friends just call her “Roz” because she was born in Texas in 1984.
And just a few months ago, we brought you the unbelievable storey of a young girl from New Zealand named “Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii.” Finally, a judge intervened and declared the 9-year-old a ward of the court, allowing her to legally change her name.
