Someone on Twitter said "try getting that name into a poem". Hmph. So here's a Clerihew.

    Has been vocal
    Producing a cloud
    So flights aren't allowed.

I'm sure people can do better in the comments.

It's the way they can pronounce the double L at the end of a word, something I can only really do in the middle. It should be a bit like -tl (like certain Mexican place names) but I find it hard to do without a following vowel.

*click* *click* Sounds like he's swallowed the final few syllables.

I'm quite used to the double (geminated?) consonants in Scandinavian languages, and I can imagine how it might be possible at the end of a word. The recording does sound like he's eating lutefisk instead of actually saying the word for 'glacier', though.
