    The Queen's Gambit Accepted the Bogulyubov Variation.

    I suppose we can be thankful that the chess player
    'Octavio Figueira Trompowsky de Almeida' only uses
    Trompowsky on his opening books, especially if
    'Fyodor Ivanovich Dus Chotimirsky' happened upon a variation.

    Then of course there is:

    1.e4 a6!

    The 'Miles' Defence. (that is pretty long)

    The Chess Book with the longest title is:

    The Book of Chess: Containing the Rudiments of the Game,
    and Elementary Analyses of the Most Popular Openings. Exemplified
    in Games Actually Played by the Greatest Masters; Including Staunton's
    Analysis of the King's and Queen's Gambits, Numerous Positions.


    by Hyacinth R Agnel (1799-1871)

    This is not a joke, the code is ISBN: 9781148456034

    There is a fairly comprehensive listing of chess openings on the "ECO Index" page of the Open Encyclopedia of Chess Openings. Hope that helps!
