Facebook-Obsessed Couple Names Their Baby ‘Like’
I’m a big fan of Facebook, but I think this is just a little too over-the-top for me. I wonder who’s going to be the next person to name their baby “poke” or “friend request”?
An Israeli couple recently named their newborn daughter “Like,” as in, the button you press when you enjoy a post on the popular social media site 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.
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?
