|Facebook Inspires Israeli Couple Toname Baby 'like' by Dotman01(m): 1:41pm On May 17, 2011|
An Israeli couple have named their
baby daughter Like, taking
inspiration from the Facebook
social networking site, Israeli
Lior Adler and his wife Vardit said they
were looking for a name that was
"modern and innovative".
Facebook allows users to "like" their
friends' statuses, pictures and posts.
Like Adler's father said originality was
a key factor in the choice and said he
had checked no-one else in Israel had
the same name.
"In our opinion it's the modern
equivalent of the name Ahava [Love],"
he said, according to Israeli
"It's just my way of saying to my
fantastic daughter, 'Love'."
According to the Haaretz newspaper,
the most popular names for girls in
Israel currently are Noa, Maya and
Like, however, will not be alone within
her family with her unusual name.
Both parents enjoy cooking and
named one of their daughters Pie -
using the English word for the name -
and Dvash, Hebrew for Honey,
according to Maariv.
Like's father said that when he
announced her arrival on Facebook
she was very popular.
"When I posted her picture and name
on Facebook I got 40 'likes'," he told
"Considering that I have only a little
more than 100 friends on the network
that's a lot."
