Eno Already

Brian Eno was born Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno. How many people do you know whose surname is only the eighth-longest word in their entire name?

Speaking of Eno, the title of his 1974 album is Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy), named after a Chinese opera called Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy. The almost-title track, though, is called "Taking Tiger Mountain." I wouldn't want anyone to get these things confused.

All those fine names, yet in the schoolyard, they still called him "Stinky."
