Israeli Couple Name Their Newborn Daughter 'Like'

NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images(JERUSALEM) -- An Israeli couple says they were looking for a unique name for their newborn baby girl when they thought about Facebook.

According to Galgalatz, an Israeli news outlet, the couple didn’t name the child Facebook, they named her Like after the social website’s “Like” button.  The report says the parents didn’t pick the name to plug Facebook, they simply like the sound of the name. 

Earlier this year, an Egyptian couple named their child Facebook in honor of the website’s role in the country’s revolution.
