Even though I'm used to Igbo names Kamsiyochukwu is unfamiliar to me and I'd only be having an educated guess at the pronunciation. If that was a kid in my year, they'd likely end up saying "Call me Kam" on the first day to avoid having their name constantly butchered.
And as for middles, that varied. I don't know all the middles of the kids in my year, but I remember a few from board registers. One boy had the middle Joseph, while others had another Igbo/Yoruba name. One girl I know had five names in addition to her surname. I don't know if that's a Yoruba tradition to give a lot of names or whether it was just her parents, but all in all it came to about 26 syllables worth of name.
