Baby Named After Facebook's 'Like'

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.
