Every so often at work, we invite everyone we know to the pub and have a night of drinks. Each BERG Drinks has a theme on the invite: this most recent one was to celebrate the birthday of Wolfe+585, Senior, so called because he has the longest personal name ever used. It’s in German, you can go read it if you like.
But if you dig around, you can find a translation of Wolfe+585’s full name into English, which is:
Adolph Blaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfe Schlegel Steinhausen-Bergedorf
who before ages were conscientious shepherds whose sheep were well tended and diligently protected against attackers who by their rapacity were enemies who 12,000 years ago appeared from the stars to the humans by spaceships with light as an origin of power, started a long voyage within starlike space in search for the star which has habitable planets orbiting and whither the new race of reasonable humanity could thrive and enjoy lifelong happiness and tranquility without fear of attack from other intelligent creatures from within starlike space Senior.
So there you go.
