The World's Longest Place Names

Ben Goulding of Pig Jockey has a list of the world's longest place names, including Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateahaumaitawhitiurehaeaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu. That's a hill in New Zealand. Because it's such a long name, most people just call it Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu for short.

I always kind of doubt that people use the full names of these places, but I guess I'd have to visit to really find out.
