Every Name in This Vogue Article Is Insane

Vogue, bless their hearts, just published an article titled “An Actress Marries a Prince at a Beautiful Summer Wedding in Bavaria.” If, upon seeing the headline, you also clicked the link so quickly that you may have sprained your wrist, you will be dearly rewarded — because every single attendee at the nuptials of Cleopatra von Adelsheim von Ernest (“an actress and model working in Germany — but also a baroness”) and Hereditary Prince Franz Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg has a completely bonkers name. (Yes, even more so than what we’ve come to expect from Vogue weddings.) 

The monikers mentioned throughout the article fall into at least one or more of the following categories: mononymous, multi-hypenated, extremely rich, “how did this even fit on a place card?”, and virtually unpronounceable. So, without further ado, here is every name ranked from most to least absurd. And a hearty prost to the happy couple.
