Facebook-Obsessed Couple Names Their Baby ‘Like’
An Israeli couple recently named their newborn daughter "Like." Yes, as in the "like" button you press when you enjoy a post on Facebook.
This is how the girl's father, Lior Adler, explained the name to the German press agency dpa:
"If once people gave Biblical names and that was the icon, then today [the Facebook Like] is one of the most famous icons in the world."
Adler's named his other two children Dvash and Pie, and he concedes that friends and family reacted "incredulously" to his latest unusual selection.
If there was ever a start a kid with a life full of severe emotional issues this is probably a good start. I will concede, however, that "Like" is not the worst name I have heard. Check out some of these other terrible names; Diva Muffin, Pilot, Espn, Banjo, Jermajesty, GoldenPalaceDotCom, or Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (Pronounced "albin"). All real names given to children. Ouch.
What do you think? Do you like the name "Like" for a human being? Or is this the kind of story that made you wish Facebook had a "dislike" button?
