British Woman Chooses 161-Word Name
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
Naming Names We’ll try to make this short. BBC News reports that Dawn McManus, a 41-year-old woman from Hartlepool, England, is legally changing her name to “Red Dreams” – but between that first and last name, she’ll have 159 additional middle names. A spokesman for the Legal Deed Poll Service, the UK’s official bureau for name changes, said, “We have processed a number of crazy name changes to date, but this is the longest one on record.” It may sound like a crazy name but Ms. Dreams chose it to help raise funds for the Red Dreams charity she set up after her son’s death. Her new 161-word name not only contains the charity’s title but also the names of people it has helped. McManus’s new full name is: Red Wacky League Antlez Broke the Stereo Neon Tide Bring Back Honesty Coalition Feedback Hand of Aces Keep Going Captain Let’s Pretend Lost State of Dance Paper Taxis Lunar Road Up Down Strange All and I Neon Sheep Eve Hornby Faye Bradley AJ Wilde Michael Rice Dion Watts Ma ...

Hartlepool Mail - almost 5 years

Dawn McManus, 41, vowed to change her name to encourage fundraising for her charity, Red Dreams, which was set up after the death of her 16-year-old son Kyle, who died in 2007. Talented arts student Kyle was struck down by a brain tumour, and his parents Dawn and Ian set up the Red Dreams charity in Whitby Street South in his memory in a bid to nurture similar youngsters with a passion for the arts. The couple have carried out dozens of fundraisers in that time to establish the charity, but Dawn has kept her promise to do something out of the ordinary by changing her name by deed poll. She believes her new name - including the charity’s name and people it has helped - could be the world’s longest. Dawn said: “Officially I should be called Red, but I appreciate some people will find it hard to embrace the change. “Ian will probably slip up and call me ...
