If you think YOUR name's too long…

janice long nameSome people have long names and others have chapters. Janice ‘Lokelani’ has bigger problems than that. She can’t go anywhere because her name doesn’t fit on an ID. ‘Lokelani’ is actually her shortened last name by 27 letters (Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele). Her last name is 35 letters long and itself doesn’t fit on any government ID, which only allow 36 characters in all.

She’s Polynesian and lives in Hawaii and is stuck there because there’s no way for her full name to be put on any documents. How about giving her a spelling test to prove who she is?  I know I’d give up after the 3rd letter!

About The Author

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
