    I think common names prevents kids from being singled out.
    It is good to have a precious, rare name.
    But not that unique. And difficult to spell.
    There are so many nice names out there.:)

    The father is Hawaiian. "La'akea" means something like sacred light and I have no clue about "Makalapuaokalanipo".

    From the web....

    “La'a” means sacred, holy, consecrated while “kea” means light, and the name roughly means “sacred light” . However, the middle name “Makalapuaokalanipō” is more of a traditional name, without any direct translation to English.

    Ronda Rousey's husband comes from Native Hawaiian stock, and has a similarly long middle name.

    Me too. My full name is 19 letters long, and 21 when including my suffix. Filling out forms can take a little while longer because of it. This is one reason that I would insist on giving short names to any children I might have.

    Not just celebrities.

    I have an nth cousin named Ronald McDonald.

    (His mother was a hippie who didn't have TV through the 60s and didn't know about the corporate clown)

    Years age I knew of some people whose last name was Seed. They named all their children names like:
    Sesame, Poppy, Sunflower...
    I feel sorry for kids whose parents do weird things like that.
