Israeli couple “likes” the name Like
There are certainly more important things to report from Israel, but this is odd enough for some attention: An Israeli couple have chosen to name their daughter “Like”—because I guess “Comment” seemed like a male name.
Here’s why the father says they picked that name, via Haaretz:
Supposedly, the father was convinced Like was the right name after he posted his baby girl’s picture on Facebook and 40 or so friends clicked the Like button. By that token, I better start renaming my vacations and milestones.
And I thought some of the names mentioned in “Freakonomics” were odd.
