A Rose By Any Other Name…

welsh town

“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

    • 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. 🙂

I welcome your thoughts...
