“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.” ~Juliet, Romeo & Juliet II, ii, 1-2
OK…..it might be as sweet, but it wouldn’t be known as the town with the L-O-N-G-E-S-T town name. A Welsh town known as Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch. Yes, it’s a real name and a real place. And I guess that poor little Welsh schoolchildren have to learn how to spell it, hopefully in high school or college. 😉
Learning things like this makes me happy. Have a wonderful Monday, Lisa
Anyone who is able to learn to spell this word has to be a genius! That’s my two-cents-worth for the day!
You are so right! I bet when a very young child in that town learns to spell it, the teachers recommend them for the gifted program. 🙂
