Celebrity Lists
Updated June 14, 2019 114.7k views 59 items

A list of celebrities who have very long names. Some have multiple middle names, and some are from cultures where their surnames include the names of all of their family members. Some just have hyphenated last names, or just extra names for no clear reason at all. What are the longest names ever? Which famous people have really long names? 

This list includes actors, musicians, writers, and other celebrity-type people who have multiple names. Several are of Spanish heritage, from cultures that customarily include the names of relatives and ancestors. These include Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, whose full naem is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, and personality Charo, who was born María del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza.
