What is the provenance of this name? At least the umpire only has to say it once at the start. Imagine if first name and surname were reversed.

At first I though, what is this, just someone punching keys on their lap top? Then I read your thread and decided to look it up, and her name is for real, I just can't. There was another thread about this a week ago.

Re: Is this name for real?

I immediately thought "Hawaii".

It's not too bad in her case because her surname is relatively short. So they just have to say "advantage Companion". Now if Kaheaokaleonahenahemaikalani was her surname, that would be a lot more challenging for the umpires and they might have to ask her if she could give them an acceptable truncated version. Otherwise, as her first name, perhaps they would say her full name at only the beginning of the match one time, and afterwards use the surname only.
