What is the longest place name in OGF world?

Posted by Arisuaq on 7 November 2018 in English (English)

Hi, I have searched for what is the longest name of the world, and I've found these two things:

  • The longest name was probably strange village named Ŷj̈letüryzyxuf̈gegeferënzuzzuzunepopöÿoẍaẍarap̂aroq̈seg̈mürpaporinsarêp̂ÿv̂ÿv̈äxenyqereqeporörap̂eq̈rsögerpäd̈erepef̆ug̈ȷarej̈om in Peridia, now AR009c, which is now a lost country, so there is probably no future.

  • As the longest place name was also mentioned Kyrkøläniykaplællöllanynrannkoiaczuomenkirkønlællëtelsapøerti in Commonia. Unfortunately, it doesn't exist anymore.

There is a question if we have a place in lost country as the longest in the world, or a place, which doesn't exist anymore. Anyway, you can add here some more long names you know. My longest name is Ilisimasassarsiorporsuaq :-). Thanks for your names.

Arisuaq.

Location: Midland, AR009

Itll probably some place that has its own language. And most place names in English, french etc. arent that long. St.this, City of that and so on. Best bet for long place names are the ogf countries where the effort to create unique languages was made or that have the ogf version of icelandic, finnish as language.

I've two candidates here: https://opengeofiction.net/#map=12/-55.8871/-140.0043

You'll have to decide for yourselves whether that counts or not.

@Arisuaq,

Despite not being place names, the names named by this user in this change-set are pretty long.

:D

Especially this road where one cannot usually see the full name rendered on the map due to its length.

I made one in the forests next to Wembury that could be about the same length as TCC's above.
