    Parents name child after Facebook 'Like' button


    By Brenna Ehrlich, Mashable

    The parents of a baby named 'Like' say they just like (pun intended) the meaning behind the name.


    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • Israeli couple Lior and Vardit Adler name their baby girl "Like"
    • Parents were looking to call their daughter something unique
    • Couple says that they're not shilling for Facebook, and it's not a
    (Mashable) -- First there was baby "Facebook" and now this: An Israeli couple has named their kid "Like."
    Let the Valley Girl jokes ensue.
    The Israeli news source Galgalatz reports that Lior and Vardit Adler are the proud parents of a bouncing baby girl named after the Facebook Like button, which recently celebrated its first birthday.
    Apparently, the parents were looking to call their daughter something unique. The moniker is not meant to be a gimmick, and they say that they're not shilling for Facebook. They just like (pun intended) the meaning behind the name.
    The Adlers are hardly the first people to saddle their kid with a suspect name.
    One man offered to name his son Batman if he could get 500,000 people to become fans of his Facebook Page, and another couple named their child Facebook in honor of the role the social network played in the revolution in Egypt.
    Granted, naming your child something unusual is not relegated to the realm of social media -- apparently "Brooklyn" is an extremely popular name -- but the name choice certainly is out there.
    What do you think? Would you "Like" the name Like?

    I hate these people.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    You know they're gonna try and pronounce it all fancy, she'll be Lee-kay or something. Which is leaky. Hrmm. Name fail.

    Like is a good name for a hamster, not your kid.
