Three months ago, an Egyptian couple named their daughter Facebook. Now, an Israeli couple has named their daughter “Like.”
Lior and Vardit Adler wanted a unique name for their third daughter. (Their first two daughters are Dvash, Hebrew for “honey,” and Pie.) They had considered Chinese name Qing Yu Lang before settling on Like.
Most people find the name highly unusual, said Lior.
However, the clerk at the hospital that recorded his daughter’s name barely flinched when he told her the name. He said, “Her lack of enthusiasm made me think I should change the name to something a bit more unusual.”
He also mentioned that only about 50 of his 120 Facebook friends have “liked” Like so far. Let’s assume he’s talking only about the name (and not about the baby) here — if you were friends with Lior Adler on Facebook, would you “like” Like? Why or why not?
P.S. Did you know that at least 6 kids in the U.S. have also been named Like?
