A Hawaii woman whose last name is 36 characters long has finally got it to fit on her driving licence and state identification card.
Janice “Lokelani” Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele received her new licence and ID after her campaign to get her full name on the cards prompted the state’s Department of Transportation to change its policy and expand how many characters can appear on them.
Hawaii driving licences and ID cards previously had room for names of up to 35 characters.

But Ms Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele’s name has 35 letters plus an okina, a mark used in the Hawaiian alphabet.
The new policy allows 40 characters for last names, 40 for first names and 35 for middle names.
