Is this 63-word moniker including 'Kim-Jong Sexy' the world's longest name?

A 25-year-old Swedish man originally called Alexander has adopted the name

You might want to take deep breath before saying this.

Kim-Jong Sexy Glorious Beast Divine Dick Father Lovely Iron Man Even Unique Poh Un Winn Charlie Ghora Khaos Mehan Hansa Kimmy Humbero Uno Master Over Dance Shake Bouti Bepop Rocksteady Shredder Kung Ulf Road House Gilgamesh Flap Guy Theo Arse Hole Im Yoda Funky Boy Slam Duck Chuck Jorma Jukka Pekka Ryan Super Air Ooy Rusell Salvador Alfons Molgan Akta Papa Long Nameh Ek.

If that’s left you wondering what on earth you’ve just read, it’s simpler than you think. Those 63 words make up the name of a 25-year-old man in Sweden – and he may have the longest moniker in the world.

To make things easier, he goes by Papa Long Nameh for short, after first changing his name from Alexander Ek when he was 18.

Ek, from Haninge near Stockholm, altered his name a further six times before finally settling on today’s combination.

“My parents were a little confused the first time a letter came addressed to Osama-Bin Ek instead of Alexander,” he told Nyheter24.

“I don't always get my mail and sometimes the electricity bill is late, but that's part of the charm.”

Ek was one of 44 Swedes who changed their names to Klaus-Heidi in October last year, as part of a Lufthansa competition to win a rent-free apartment in Berlin for a year along with paid-for German language classes.

Ek didn’t win the completion and no longer includes Klaus-Heidi in his name - but he joked that the “Kim-Jong” element might land him an alternative prize.

“It would be great to win a trip to North Korea now but I probably wouldn't come back,” he said.

In Sweden an individual can change their name once free of charge and for 1,000 Swedish krona (£87) each time thereafter.
