Are the names of the champions engraved on GS trophies?

I have seen HD photos of Fed holding the Wimbledon trophy, names of the former champions are engraved on it. Do all the names fit on the trophy? If so what are they going to do when there'll be no space left? And what about trophies of other GS, do they engrave name on those trophies as well?

Just curious...

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

they will just change the current 'options'; right now the names are engraved with a times new roman character size 18. they can use a size 12 and if not enough change the character as well.
