Norwegian bus driver Andreas Jankov has officially become "Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacka Highlander Elessar-Jankov", thereby apparently claiming the country's longest name crown. We're certain that Reg readers will be able to spot where film lover Elessar-Jankov got most of the inspiration for his makeover, but the …
"I wanted to show that it is possible to be serious and at the same time take the name you like."
...and you failed. Still, top marks for effort.
one ugly mother
He could have worked harder on the intials
The best I can come up with is a 7 letter word: G R A H A M E
missing the 2 J's though
Oh my god..
..Chewbacka is accurate - he's like a (slightly) shaven version!
I need a drink to calm my nerves.
Here's a slightly less scary - but not entirely dissimilar - photo
Take care ladies, don't get crushed in the stampede.
If that was the picture they chose, what the hell did they reject?
At least he is making the name change for himself and not forcing it on his offspring.
He probably meant Chewbacca. He'll have to get a re-issued certificate now.
He looks like Chewbacca after a shave. A very apt name, methinks!
It's funny how the picture exactly matches my mental image of what I thought he would look like.
I thought you crossed "Highlander" out because there can be only one?
Mines the one with the scabbard in the back ta.
Little Bobby Tables
The tittle says it all.
for those that need a clue, check :
God, he looks scary!
As title. I only ever normally meet people like that in mosh pits.
So "Julius Andreas" isn't a masculinised version of everyone's favourite singing nun then?
I'd have thought looking like that would be enough of an incentive for women to stay away from him. Why add more obstacles, dude?
He looks like an Eric to me.
he looks exactly how I'd expect a Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacka Highlander Elessar-Jankov to look.
I thought that was another name for the Daily Mail...
... Julius Sad Loser With No Life Jankov?
Who wants to bet that any domain name, email address, username, or anything else he wants to register as a unique identifier will already be taken, even with a name like that?
And I pity him if he meets a police officer who demands his full name - a night in the cells for taking the mick?
How small have they had to print to get that name on a bank card....
Two words spring to mind
And if you're picking a stock fantasy character, why Gimli? Legolas is way cooler.
That's one strange strange dude.
I think if I saw that coming at me I'd probably shit meself.
Knut Knutssen been more appropriate, if not as long.
And Galadriel is far hotter, but what you gonna do.
"Those of a nervous disposition are advised to steer well clear."
I didn't think I HAD a nervous disposition until I clicked on the link...
Revealed at last...
The caption for the photo clearly proves that he is the Stig!
Note to self
Don't ride the bus in Norway.
What about Wookie?
There is a techy guy in Cambridge who has the complete name of "Wookie" - he might even read this.
But he has the cheek to complain that websites insist on both given and family names being supplied and that he has to type in Wookie for both. - You chose the name you muppett!
Also the name is more than slightly ironic as he is of much less than average stature!
swedish nights !!! (fnargh)
"And I pity him if he meets a police officer who demands his full name - a night in the cells for taking the mick?"
Reminds me of the chap I used to know who's given name was James Tarbuck (yes really). Got stopped by plod one night who asked his name, the inevitable response was: "Think you're a comedian do you?" The orifice did apologize once he'd seen Jim's license, but he always made a point of carrying with him because of these "amusing" encounters.
Makes you wonder why somebody would create such problems for themself. Does he really like to hear the phrase "Very good now stop pissing about and be serious" so much that he needs to hear it every day?
@ac / what about wookie
that sounds like the Linux guys who choose their OS then complain because they can't run Flight Simulator or watch movies in some really common codec.
I'll be riding in...
... the handily parked Renault Twizy then...
.............its still not as long as Glastonbury teenager whos called 'Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined.'
It's Comic Book Guy!!
Worst Name Ever......
Re; What about Wookie?
wouldnt that be "ewok?"
i know... im going...
Oh Jesus Christ, my eyes!
No more pictures please!
