Ever been to Bangkok?
Do you know what the locals call the place?

here tis

Krungthepmahanakonbowornratanakosinmahintarayudyayamahadiloponoparatanarajthaniburiromudomrajniwesmahasatarnamornpimarnavatarsatitsakattiyavisanukamphrasit Laughing

Translated:

The land of angels, the great city of immortality, various of devine gems,
the great angelic land unconquerable, land of nine noble gems, the royal city, the pleasant capital,
place of the grand royal palace, forever land of angels and reincarnated spirits,
predestined and created by the highest devas.


These people do have a very poetic and descriptive way to name their cities..

Welsh and Maori - a great mix, Yes the hill in Hawkes bay certainly is more thatn a mouthful, and yes I can pronounce it slowly.

The welsh names usually describe the place. In this case (after a quick google search):
whose name means St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio of the red cave

I wonder how Seattle would be named...
the city of seven hills in the land by the sound of Puget and the daily rain and clouds that hide the sky
That sounds about right!
