There's a bunch of hominid species with really hard-to-spell names; A. deyiremeda, A. garhi (which for some reason I always think has either two r's or two i's), K. ayeyarwadyensis (that's just taking the piss), Samburupithecus kiptalami (it does roll pleasantly off the tongue though), P. tapanuliensis, Praeanthropus bahrelghazali (sounds like a bar-fighting australopithecine), H. tsaichangensis (probably not going to pass muster as a species anyway, so fuck learning that spelling!)

Fortunately, you typically just refer to them by their fossil designation, i.e. KNM-SH 8531, LB1, KT-12/H1 as you want to be talking about particular specimens from specific times and locations.
