Well, let's see, my grandfather on my dad's side was named Manuel Alves, than he named my father Manuel Gonçalves (my grandmother's family name) Alves.
When I was born my parents named me Luís Manuel Ribeiro (mom's) Alves (dad's). Belive it or not, when I decided to get married I took my wifes name, ence "dos Reis".
My wife's name is Maria de Fátima Santos Alves dos Reis, I always thaught it was cool for husband and wife have the same name. Since her name was already long and to be honest it would be kinda dumm, for her to add Alves in her name (Maria de Fátima Santos Alves dos Reis Alves - see what I mean), I decided to take her last name. So now we're both Alves dos Reis.
If it all sounds funny to you, don't worry it's just the portuguese way...

On a curious note, the portuguese kings did have some long names, mine his tiny compared to theire's. Just a couple of exemples:

D. Maria II: Maria da Glória Joana Carlota Leopoldina da Cruz Francisca Xavier de Paula Isidora Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga

D. Luís I: Luís Filipe Maria Fernando Pedro de Alcântara António Miguel Rafael Gabriel Gonzaga Xavier Francisco de Assis João Augusto Júlio Valfando

D. Carlos I: Carlos Fernando Luís Maria Vítor Miguel Rafael Gabriel Gonzaga Xavier Francisco de Assis José Simão

D. Manuel II: Manuel Maria Filipe Carlos Amélio Luís Miguel Rafael Gonzaga Xavier Francisco de Assis Eugénio

See what I mean.

One of my friends is named Larry and his real name is Laurence. He married a girl with the last name of Olivier and we tried to convince him to take her last name instead but he wouldn't.

There's a local here in town with the name... Harry Hand (insert joke here).

I kid you not. Parents can be sooooo cruel.

Nah, the pain is over now... most people weren't aware I was burnt until they slapped me on the back and were greeted with me on the defensive screaming ouch!

I did have sunscreen... I forgot you have to reapply it every so often and when you get out of the water (where I spent most the day...)

As for Gov't property... I rennovated... Everyone knows red goes faster!!!

Naw, but I did get to see a dolphin (probably more behind me) that jumped up beside me when me and my Aunt rented jet-skis... That was a rush!
