Baby Named ABS-CBN After TV Network

A handful of boys in the U.S. have been named ESPN, but those ESPNs ain’t got nothin’ on a Filipino kid named ABS-CBN.

ABS-CBN Macawili was born on 9 November 2006 in Zamboanga del Norte. ABS-CBN’s gender hasn’t been released, but his/her name comes from local TV network ABS-CBN, which stands for “Alto Broadcasting System-Chronicle Broadcasting Network.”

ABS-CBN’s mother said that “her husband dreamt of naming her baby after the network,” so that’s just what they did.
