    Hawaiian Woman Wins in Battle for Superlong Name on Driver’s License

    A Hawaiian woman with 36 characters in her last name has won her fight for space on her driver’s license and state ID card to accommodate her full name.

    It’s a small but long victory for Janice “Lokelani” Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele.

    The video at the link is pretty funny. The news anchors trying to pronounce the name. :giggle:

    Good for her! That's her name!

    I went to elementary school on Maui. I remember practicing writing my address and it used to cover the entire envelope. Ha! Love those Hawaiian names. :)
