Sir David Attenborough is a prized person not just in his home of the U.K., but around the world.
So much so, that the honors bestowed upon him are quite the acronym accomplishment, becoming even longer than his full name.
His given name, with his knighted status: Sir David Frederick Attenborough. His honorary titles are written thusly:
