Hubert Blaine Wolfe­schlegel­stein­hausen­berger­dorff Sr. (a.k.a. Hubert Wolfstern,[2] Hubert B. Wolfe + 666, Sr.,[3] Hubert Blaine Wolfe+585, Sr.,[4] and Hubert Blaine Wolfe+590, Sr.,[5] among others) is the abbreviated name of a typesetter who has held the record for the longest personal name ever used. Hubert's given name is made up from 26 names, each starting with a different letter of the alphabet in consecutive order; these are followed by an enormously long single-word surname. The exact length and spelling of his name has been a subject of considerable confusion due in part to its various renderings over the years, many of which are plagued by typographical errors. One of the longest and most reliable published versions, with a 666-letter surname, is as follows:
