Baby Named After Turkey

The country, not the bird. :)

In late 2011, after a visit from Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Muse family of Somalia — living in a tent city at the time — named their baby boy Turkiye Abdurrahman Muse.

Turkiye’s father was quoted as saying:

The Somali people have great affection for Turkey. When Prime Minister Erdogan was in Somalia, my wife was eight month[s] pregnant. Due to our love for Turkey, my wife and I decided to name our baby ‘Turkiye’. No country supported Somalia as much as Turkey. We are grateful to Turkey.
