Derek...McQueen: Soccer Obsession Sets a Record of “198 Letters” to a Name

A Brit man, name given in the paragraph below, claims to be blessed with the longest ever name- it's 198 letters long! The reason- his father chose to name him after the Rangers Football club's entire league winning squad from 1974/75. The record-holder hails from Kelty in Fife

His birth certificate name reads: Derek Parlane Stein Jackson Hunter McCloy Kennedy Scott Forsyth Henderson Boyd Robertson O'Hara Johnstone Miller Dawson Armour McDougall McLean McKean Fyfe McDonald Jardine Young Morris Denny Hamilton Watson Greig Wallace McQueen.

"I don't imagine many people will have longer names than myself. When folks ask me I can't even remember them all - even after all this time," British tabloid The Sun quoted Derek as saying.

"They (people) wouldn't put my full name on my driving licence or even my registration for my kids.

"On forms they simply reduce it to the first name, which is Parlane.

"But I quite enjoy the middle names - it is unique and a bit of fun. Most people just laugh. However it means something to my dad which is nice," he added.

Previously Jennifer George, 26, from Huntly, Aberdeenshire, claimed to have a name with 166 letters, including the names of 20 soccer stars.

Thomas, 41, has 11 Ibrox stars written on his birth certificate - again a dad's choice, while George Garratt, 19, changed his name to Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined- with 81 letters.
