difficult to pronounce

I love wikipedia..

While I am watching King Arthur in Television, I am searching for some Story's about Arthur and the time before.
And I have found a Town with the longest Town name in Europe.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch

Is this really possible to pronounce???

I would not know how to pronounce that.

We have a lake in Webster, MA it is pretty close to us here, it is 45 letters long... Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg (/ˌleɪk tʃəˈɡɒɡəɡɒɡ ˌmænˈtʃɔːɡəɡɒɡ tʃəˌbʌnəˈɡʌŋɡəmɔːɡ/),[2] a 45-letter alternative name for this body of fresh water, is often cited as the longest place name in the United States and one of the longest in the world. It is spelled incorrectly on the sign bordering Connecticut.[3]

Lake Chaubunagungamaug is the name it is recognized as, or simply Webster Lake is another it is known as

Aww ... beat me to it!!

Tradition has it that the translation is: "You fish on your side, I'll fish on my side, and nobody fishes in the middle." (Not true, but I wish it were! And no, I don't know the actual translation.)

The name featured in the 1960's cult film Barbarella, as the password to Dildando's headquaters, so search for the film and you'll hear it beinf spoken.
