In an effort to show the world how modern they are, an Israeli couple recently named their baby “Like,” after the popular Facebook feature, the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported on Monday.
“We named her Like because it’s modern and innovative,” father Lior Adler told the mass-circulation paper. “I checked that the name does not exist elsewhere in the country, that was the main condition for me,” he said.
“In our opinion it’s the modern equivalent of the name Ahava (Love) he added. “It’s just my way of saying to my fantastic daughter, ‘love.'”
Lior Adler and his wife, Vardit, have in the past strayed into unusual territory in naming their offspring. The pair share a passion for cooking and so decided to name their other daughters “Pie,” using the English word for the name, and “DVash,” Hebrew for “Honey,” Maariv reported.
There is no doubt that Facebook has chenged and sheped (ehh… Israeli pronounciation of “shaped”) lives. I say, if it’s good enough for the Egyptians, it should be good enough for everyone else.
