Deciding on a superhero theme, the 19-year-old music graduate paid 10 to change his name by 'The Legal Deed Service' last week.

 
 The teenager, from Glastonbury, Somerset, added that while he thought the new name was "crazy", his grandmother was no longer speaking to him.

 
 The 19-year-old music student from Glastonbury said he decided to include several superheroes after asking his friends for suggestions.

  
He said: "I decided to change my name as a bit of a laugh. I decided on a theme - superheroes - and whenever my friends offered up suggestions to me, I added them to the list.

 
 "My family have begun to expect these sorts of things from me and although my friends thought it was ridiculous most people do call me Captain and it's been a great conversation starter.

   "I really like my new name, so I might stick with it. I sometimes forget what to call myself when I answer the phone, but it is just one of those things."

  
The former world record for the Longest personal name was Rhoshandiatellyneshiaunneveshenk Koyaanisquatsiuth Williams - 57 letters compared with Captain Fantastic's 81.
