A madcap Brit can now boast the longest moniker in the world after adopting a middle name beginning with all 26 letters of the alphabet.

Madcap Brit's full-name has 197 characters

Barnaby Usansky, 36, formerly Nick, is fascinated by words and added the new names by Deed Poll – plus Marmaduke – because he loves it so much.

His full name is now Barnaby Marmaduke Aloysius Benjy Cobweb Dartagnan Egbert Felix Gaspar Humbert Ignatius Jayden Kasper Leroy Maximilian Neddy Obiajulu Pepin Quilliam Rosencrantz Sexton Teddy Upwood Vivatma Wayland Xylon Yardley Zachary Usansky.

But despite the amazing title – all 197 letters of it – his mates still call him Nick.

Unemployed Barnaby, originally from Manchester, said: ”I did it because I love words and old traditional names.

”I’ve always wanted to be called Marmaduke as well, because it is such a splendid name. My friends and family think it is ridiculous and daft.

”Everybody ignores my new name. They insist oncalling me Nick, which isn’t one of my names any more.

”I’ve even had people telling me, ‘I’m not calling you Barnaby’. They don’t ask me what I want to be called and you have to call somebody what they wish to be called.

”I like the idea that if I go to a new job they will have to call me Barnaby whether they like it or not.”

Nick, now living in Edinburgh, first of all chose the aristocratic names he’d always dreamed of, becoming Barnaby Marmaduke Usansky.

He’d been saving the moniker Marmaduke for his son but, single at 36, decided to take it himself.

He added: ”I thought I had made a terrible mistake because I hadn’t taken advantage of the opportunity.

”I thought I could have done more, I could have got a bit more exciting about the whole thing.”

Other weird and wonderful new names include student Philip Anthony Mackintosh, 18, of Middlesbrough, who is now known as Bagheera Anthony Dairy Lea Dunkable Mackintosh.

Alex Joel Crew, a 25-year-old clothing company boss from Bexleyheath, Kent, became Jerzasaurus Maximus Armstrong.

David Christopher Varney, 26, became Jonny Horatio Jorge Dinosaurhead.

Jonny, from Harlow, Essex says the name change has brought him luck, landing him a new girlfriend and an upturn in his work fortunes.

Leeds United fan and semi-retired plumber Martin Casson Bland, 50, became We Beat The Scum One-Nil in honour of ‘The Whites’ famous FA Cup victory at Old Trafford last season.

Shane Micheal Foulkes, 30, from Doncaster, Yorkshire, is now Monkey Skunky.

The plasterer and tattooist has used the name while playing computer games for years and so decided to make it official.

Recruitment consultant Michael George Sherry, 22, from St. Albans, Hertfordshire, is now Mike Moonshine.

Mike lost a bet and was forced to choose between the surnames Moonshine or Mango.

Tracie Anne Koziura is know known as to Rebel Wolf. The 52-year-old artist from Leicester has always had the nickname Wolf and claims she was a rebel when she was younger.

Kirsty Louise Jenkins has become Missy Pixie Bubble. Missy, 21, from Burgess Hill, Sussex has been known as Bubble to her friends for years and also decided to add the names Missy and Pixie.

Colin John Goring, 47, changed his name to Bear Love. Bear runs workshops for aboriginal arts and lives in Stratford, London.
