The woman with the longest name in the world has a 60 cm long birth certificate.

Many of us are famil­iar with some rather uncon­ven­tion­al names par­ents give to their new­born babies — often based on their favorite movie, food, foot­baller, or location.

Well, San­dra Williams clear­ly was­n’t into the clas­sic three- or four-let­ter names like “Tom” or “Sam” either and went for some­thing very different.

Her baby girl was born on Sep­tem­ber 12, 1984, and her par­ents wrote Rhoshan­di­atel­ly­neshi­aun­n­evesh­enk Koy­aanisquat­si­uth Williams on her birth certificate.

If you think, “damn, that’s a long time,” her par­ents thought the opposite.

They filed a name change and chose to change it to 1,019 let­ters, as well as a mid­dle name of 36 letters.

A Guin­ness World Record was bro­ken and her birth cer­tifi­cate was two feet long.

Well ‘Jamie’ is what her friends call her and in 1997 she appeared on Oprah with her mom.

San­dra said: “I had to do some­thing to break a Guin­ness World Record. I had to make sure her name was unique.

“I did­n’t want his name to be like every­one else’s.

“His name had to be dif­fer­ent and I had to be in the Guin­ness Book.”

After the record was bro­ken, Texas dra­mat­i­cal­ly changed its law so that chil­dren could only be giv­en a nick­name that would match the “name” box on the birth cer­tifi­cate form, as report­ed by The Mirror.

As you might expect, social media weighed in on their opin­ion of the story.

An unim­pressed user wrote: “This can’t be real. This woman needs a slap on the back of the head.

“With some kind of sil­ly thing to do. Why did­n’t the moth­er change her name to this show name?

“These are just names in chains. Smdh. (Sic)”

“Ask the moth­er if she can say her own daugh­ter’s name,” added another.

Some­one else com­ment­ed, “I love that his name is Williams.”
