It’s a lovely day in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

No, we didn’t just let the cat up on the keyboard. That’s the actual name of a town in Wales, where it was a comfortable 70 degrees Tuesday. How do you pronounce that town’s name? Honestly, we couldn’t tell you. But Liam Dutton, forecaster for Channel 4 in the UK, could. Watch him casually roll it off his tongue while delivering the evening forecast.

The town’s name, in case for some reason you didn’t know, means “Saint Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave,” according to the Huffington Post. So, basically, it’s one of the most specific Google Maps searches ever.


Wales Online has a slideshow of 14 Welsh town names with no English vowels.
