It had to happen.
A couple has decided to name their baby "Like," taking inspiration from the popular social networking site, Facebook.
An Israeli couple who prides themselves on giving their kids "unique, creative and totally new" names decided to use the "Like" button as the inspiration for their daughter's name, feeling it gave her an international flair.
It is reported however, that the couple did not necessarily name the child after the button we press on Facebook to express interest or approval for a posting - the mother says they chose the name because it is "short and sweet" and, in any event, the other two kids were named Dvash (Hebrew for "honey") and Pie (as in apple pie).
They have assured us that Facebook did not pay them to use the name, and the baby's father admits that he only has about 120 friends on the networking site.
It could be weirder - as PC World points out, an Egyptian father decided to go to the extreme and name his child "Facebook."
The good thing here is that little Like already has hundreds of comments on her own Facebook page.
CIO has decided that there are ten tech-inspired names that are better than Like. Topping the list at number one is Perl, followed by Mac, Ruby and Linus, with PC rounding out the list at number ten (which has to be better than JR).
We may be on to a trend but I have to say that Pascal is not a bad name either... it certainly beats calling your daughter "Twitter."
