RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with an update on a Hawaiian woman with a very long name - Janice Lokelani Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele. She goes by Loke, but Honolulu's KHOM2 reported on her complaint that her name was cut off on ID cards, which led to issues with travel and cops.
Now, Hawaii will expand its limit on the length of names on IDs so Loke won't need to use her maiden name - Worth.
