Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales!  Yes, this is the real name of a village on Anglesey Island, Wales!

This article will help with the pronunciation of the town's name. http://llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.co.uk/say.php

Here's a meteorologist nailing it! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/weatherman-pronounces-welch-town_55f04b8de4b002d5c077704d?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000023

However, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales is the second longest one-word name of a town in the world.   This town is second to: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand!  This video will help in the pronunciation of the town's name: http://www.radiolive.co.nz/VIDEO-Can-you-say-Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu/tabid/504/articleID/39365/Default.aspx

Lol, I would have been "ah-screw-it" with trying to say it. That weather guy had to have practiced it, or grew up there.

 

Reminds me of the volcano in Iceland a few years back.
