Watch This Weatherman Easily Pronounce The Hardest Name Ever

Brave weather man Liam Dutton has become an overnight Twitter celebrity thanks to his correct pronunciation of the Welsh town Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

The town is well known for possessing Europe's longest name for a place and is famous for being impossible to pronounce unless you are a native Welsh speaker. But Dutton doesn't even bat an eye over it!

The name means: Parish [church] of [St.] Mary (Llanfair) [in] Hollow (pwll) of the White Hazel [township] (gwyn gyll) near (go ger) the rapid whirlpool (y chwyrn drobwll) [and] the parish [church] of [St.] Tysilio (Llantysilio) with a red cave ([a]g ogo[f] goch).

And if you're interested in trying to tackle the pronunciation, the English pronunciation guide goes like this: Llan-vire-pooll-guin-gill-go-ger-u-chwurn-drob-ooll-llantus-ilio-gogo-goch.

Not only is it an incredibly long name for a town, but now the Welsh town's name is an incredibly long hashtag on Twitter. #Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
