    Embarrasing the English speakers

    Whilst this place name might get about nine million points in a game of scabble, anyone not born with sound of Male voice choirs and bleeting sheep in their lugholes will find it virtually impossible to pronounce.

    Despite that fact that everyone refers to it (including the Welsh) as Llfair or LlanfairPG, the local council have suggested (and of course this wasn't anti-English in anyway) that anyone wishing to live in the area should have the 'test' of being able to pronounce the place properly.

    I just wonder quite how 'toungue-in-cheek' the suggestion really was.

    My father was born in Wales and so was my Grand father
    but both like myself are English, but my father prides himself
    on speaking Welsh. I even have a Welsh middle name...Ffrancon
    which means beaver in English.
    I used to drive to Anglsey past Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochuchaf
    to visit my Aunt and Uncle who live in Newborough but she passed away
    a few years ago.

    Croeso !
    Welcome to the Welsh village with the LONGEST name in Britain!
    the village with the longest name in Wales,
    on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn), near Menai Bridge, North Wales. The main language spoken is Welsh.

    The Longest Domain Name in the World !
    The longest domain name in the world is actually
    - which refers to the upper part of the village.

    Long Domain Names
    The maximum length of a domain name (excluding the .com, .org.uk, etc) is 63 characters. This has exactly 63.
    There are other domain names that also have 63 characters, but all of these are false words, such as abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijh.com. Anyone can string together 63 characters, but Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochuchaf.com (together with the equivalent .org.uk, .net, etc.) is the only known valid domain name of this length.

    Some ISP's do not have their systems set up to the standards required to access a domain of this length.
    To find out whether your ISP's systems are up to scratch, click on the following link ! If you get "unavailable" or a message "cannot resolve", then the chances are that they have problems. The link is :
