Are they called this because they use extremely large script or because they're extremely long?? ??? ;D

That being a Monumental question, it is possible that there exists, a Monumental answer, but what it actually is, poses problems as a Monumental effort would be required to fully cover the Monumental reason for said Monumental question, and I am unable to add answering Inscriptions here at present, so the answer will have to wait for the Monumental efforts of others  ::) ::) ::)

Here lies Ivor Davies of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is pretty much monumental.
I understand his headstone is now the North stand of Cardiff Arms Park.

Truly wonderful answers and responses here. Perhaps we ought to preserve this topic, as a monument in itself?
(In aspic, perhaps, as tongues are so firmly in cheeks?)
