welcome to "lot of random letters" village

in fact it's llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch village

let's analyze and try to guess the subliminal messages in this weird and apparently retarded appellation:

it's composed of 58 letters: 40 are consonants & 18 vowels.

there are three As, one B, two Cs, one D, one E, one F, seven Gs ... hmmm, I'm getting something ... two Hs, three Is, no J!!! and no K ... interesting ... 11 Ls, zero Ms, four Ns, six Os, one P, no Q, four Rs, one S, one T, no U, no V, four Ws, no X, five Ys and no Z ... wow!

I managed also to extract the words: fair, air, go, rob & ant.

well, seriously & according to wikipedia, the original name of the village is llanfair pwllgwyngyl, it is as well a community on the island of anglesey in wales, the village's extreme long name is not an authentic welsh-language toponym, but was artificially contrived in the 1860s in an attempt to develop the village as a commercial and tourist center.

also according to wikipedia, the world longest place name in the world is (in two parts or else I'll have some troubles with my blog):

part 1: tetaumatawhakatangihangakoauaotamateaurehaeatu
part 2: ripukapihimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuaakitanarahu

it means in māori "the summit where tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his flute to his loved one".

any volunteers for the analysis?
