As Flootzavut's images are not any more available, this is how the generator of subtitles 'translate' Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch (Enjoy!) :

'flan biotic winger togetic wing robber fantasy leo go go go'

  • 'flan' stands for 'llan',
  • 'biotic' for 'fairpwll', (not very accurate on this one!)
  • 'winger' for 'gwyngyll',
  • 'togetic' for 'gogerych', *
  • 'wing' for 'wyrn',
  • 'robber' for 'drobwll',
  • 'fantasy' for 'llantysi',
  • 'leo' for 'lio',
  • 'go go go' for 'gogogoch'

  • Er, can somebody tell me why there is a Pokemon name here? XD
