    * Some People Are Crazy!!!

    Parents Lior and Vardit Adler have named their newborn daughter "Like" after Facebook's "like" button, reports Galgalatz, an Israeli news outlet.

    According to a translation of the Galgalatz article, the parents were looking for a unique name for their baby girl and liked the sound of the word "Like." The name was not intended to be a gimmick, nor an ad for the social networking site.

    Like's father, Lior, says he himself is not the biggest Facebook fan, with only some 120 friends on the social networking site.

    Like is not the first baby to be named after Mark Zuckerberg's site: earlier this year, an Egyptian father named his child "Facebook" in a nod to the social networking service's role in the country's revolution.

    The next few generations of kids are going to have some funky names. This trend has been going on for a few years already.

    Wow normally I would laugh at something like this but in this case it's very worrying!

    At least the Egyptian father had a reason I guess

    We both know anything is possible in California including genetic modification. Might need to hurt your professor at UC for failing to teach you that.

    I suppose at least it ain't spiritual, or an item like an "Apple" or "Pear". But why would you call your child "Facebook"...?

    Cause their face is buried in a book?

    I dunno, people are strange, it's like that joke a while back, a brother helped his sister name her kids Deniece and Denephew

    I like the idea, but I think grammatical mistakes will be more when u make sentences with such names.

    Don't bury the parents before they give their own explanation.
    Parents give names to represent something spacial in their lives. 'Like' is just one of them.
    Be the next with a "dislike"
