10 Tech-Inspired Baby Names Like ‘Like’

facebook likeA few months ago, PCWorld published a list of 10 tech-inspired baby names better than Like.

I thought I’d compile a similar list, but go in the opposite direction. So below are ten real-life, headline-grabbing, tech-inspired names just like Like.

Starting, of course, with Like:


An Israeli baby girl was named Like after the Facebook “Like Button” in 2011. (Go like baby Like, if you like.)


A Egyptian baby girl was named Facebook after the social networking site Facebook in 2011.


A Swedish baby boy was named Google after the search engine Google in 2005.

[I’ve never blogged about this one before, surprisingly. Oliver Google Kai was born on 12 September 2005 in Kalmar, Sweden, to Dr. Walid Elias Kai (who is Lebanese) and his wife Carol (who is Swedish). Google’s response: “We wish him long life and good health, and hope his schoolmates aren’t too hard on him.”]


A Chinese baby boy was possibly named @ after the “at” symbol found in e-mail addresses in 2007. (The name may or may not have been approved by the Chinese government.)


A Canadian baby girl was named Vista after the Windows Vista operating system in 2007.


An American baby boy was named Jon Blake Cusack 2.0 — 2.0 in place of a more traditional suffix, like II or Jr. — in 2004.


A Dutch baby girl was named Annanova after virtual newscaster Ananova in 2000.


An English baby boy was named Trendy in part after “Trending Topics” on Twitter in 2011.


A handful of babies from various countries were named Iuma as part of the Internet Underground Music Archive (IUMA) baby naming contest in 2000.


An American baby boy was named Dovahkiin after a video game character just a few days ago. (Other video game baby names include Zelda and Rinoa)

UPDATE, 1/2014: Here’s another tech-related name — an American baby girl has been named Tali’Zorah after a video game character.

UPDATE, 9/2015: And yet another tech-related name — Linux, which debuted on the national list just recently.

Two More Obnoxious Celebrity Baby Names


Soccer player Gabriel Zakuani and his girlfriend welcomed a baby boy in September and named him Trendy.

[Gabriel] said: “People have asked if his name is because of ‘trending topics’ on Twitter. Maybe it was in the back of my mind.”

Gabriel said the name also refers to the baby’s mum Shanice Petrie’s job in fashion. He said: “The official reason was she wanted something to reflect that. But it was me who came up with Trendy.”


Actress Shayne Lamas and her husband welcomed a baby girl on 11-11-11 and named her Press.

Her unusual name started off as a joke between the couple, but is now a confirmed reality.

‘Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press,’ Shayne told E! News prior to the birth.

‘It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,’ but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name – her name was going to be Press!

‘I think Press is a beautiful name, we’re elated, little princess Press!’
