Liam Dutton is the most badass weatherman out there. When the U.K. announcer had to report the weather for Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, a small Welsh town, he calmly said it with unwavering confidence.
The 58-letter name, which translates to “St. Mary’s Church in the hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio near the red cave” in English, is usually shortened down to “Llanfairpwllgwyngyll,” “Llanfairpwll” or “Llanfair PG.” But, clearly Britain’s Channel 4 News thought Dutton was up for the challenge. And yes, he nailed it.
So, thinking of giving this tricky place name a shot? Here’s it is broken down into smaller chunks:
LLAN – FAIR – PWLL – GWYN – GYLL – GO – GER – YCH – WYRN – DROB – WLL – LLAN – TY – SILIO – GO – GO – GOCH
