Longer than the English alphabets

While surfing through the net, I came across this name on a obituaty website.

Sivapathasomasuntharalingam!

All in one word with 28 English alphbets.

If dissect the name, one will end up with at least 5 Tamil names.

Siva-patha-soma-sunthara-lingam.

However the trader from Northern Province of Jaffna, Sri Lanka has shorten his name to Sivapatham.

Just wondering how he managed to write his name on a passport form or on the online forms?

Rest in peace Sivapathasomasuntharalingam!
