How much data can be placed into the Description attribute for an object?

Is there any difference between the amount that can be stored between different object types?

Which attribute is best suited to holding the larger amounts of data? (description, full name another?)

Hi Anthony,

It seems to my testing, Description or any other custom attribute can hold large amount of text. But there seems to be limit to the text stored in Name attribute. I tried storing about 3000 characters in Description attribute.
