    Yes, I learned how to pronounce it!
    I may have a bit of an accent because I'm not a native speaker, but I believe I can.

    There's also a place in New Zealand called Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu.

    And the formal name of Bangkok is Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.

    I couldn't pronounce it.

    I wonder if they have some sort of sports team. I would just love to hear a whole stadium of people cheering "Go Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch! Go Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch!"

    It rhymes with "pluck that chip."
    That I actually can work out (even the wh) and pronounce, albiet clumsily.
    The Welsh thing? They are in fact the original sons of a silly person who's mother was a hamster and who's father smelt of elderberries. And stuff like that (they have another "screw everyone" name for a city) is a part of the reason why.

    Doesn't the "wh" just sound like an "f"?
    Or is there some kind of subtle difference that is hard to discern for non native speakers, like the Chinese "ch" and "q" sound?

    Or do you mean clumsily in the sense that when you pronounce the first part of that word, you hear of Beavis and Butthead chuckling in your mind because: "hehehehehe hehehehehe... I said ****... hehehehe hehehe"?

    Most people cheet by saying it as
    "Llanfair-p-g" sometimes with a "go-go-goch" at the end

    But even they has a twist, the Ll is pronounced Clh

    The full place name is uses for torture of non locals.

    The best Welsh word i know is the word for carrot. Not going to write it here but google will tell anyone how it translates. Hint, calling someone a Walsh carrot is something of an insult

    P.S. I've lived most of my life not to far from the Welsh border

    I looked it up.
    I can't tell whether it is the Welsh word for carrot, or that Translate is calling me names for not knowing the Welsh word for carrot...:confused:

    The name was supposedly contrived as a publicity stunt.

    Yeah, it sounds like an f.
    And clumsily as in a few syllables at a time due to not routinely, habitually, or normally saying words that long, lol.
