An episode of Oprah has gone viral recently and all because of this little girl’s name.

The episode, which aired in 1997, features a young girl, going by her nickname ‘Jamie’, and her mother.

The pair appeared on the show because ‘Jamie’ has a very special name. Have a look at it in the clip below.

Audiences and even Oprah herself was floored by the young girl’s name which boasts over 1,000 letters!

‘Jamie’s full name was so impressive that it even got into the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest name ever recorded.

If you didn’t catch it in the video clip here is ‘Jamie’s full name.

I’ve heard a lot of parents talk about how they wanted their child to have a unique name so they wouldn’t end up having the same name as someone in their class.

I don’t think ‘Jamie’ will ever have to worry about finding someone with the same full name as her.

I thought it was bad having three middle names to put on my passport application but after seeing this girl’s name I don’t feel so hard done by.
