    This is hard to figure because what do you not include. There are chemical names that would go on for pages. Then there are compound names. 100 years is a centennial. Well if you keep adding to that you will keep making the name longer and longer. 175 years in letters would be nearly 35 letters long. But in normal words that are in use, the antidistablishment... is the longest.
