Couple names their child "Like" because of Facebook

Couple names their child "Like" because of Facebook An Israeli couple has named their newborn "Like," thanks to their joint obsession with social networking giant Facebook.
Says the father (via German press):

To me it is important to give my children names that are not used anywhere else, at least not in Israel. If once people gave Biblical names and that was the icon, then today [the Facebook Like] is one of the most famous icons in the world.


Like Adler is the third child from Lior and Vardit Adler. Their other two kids are Dvash ("Honey" in Hebrew) and Pie.

The mother adds: "Like has a nice, international ring to it."

216.5.2011 23:53

Aww, I read it as Link and was kinda excited. This sucks.

WTF is this news?

417.5.2011 2:19

Perhaps they are funny fellow parents.

517.5.2011 2:40

Cool how about my first child's name should be something like:

'where[0x00"

That should help them be unique!

How about E=mc? Unique plus easy to remember...and the kid will still get beat up less than "Like" and "Facebook".

It's the kindo thing..you know when a white man steps on a remote Island and the the inhabitants think he is some kind of god!! He gives them a button when he leaves and they worship it! XD

Heh... I named my son Lincoln just so I can call him 'Link' for short...

The wife would not go for Zelda for my daughter however : )

If I ever have another child (which I won't) I'd name it E pluribus unum.
But since my wife is Afro-American she would probably want to name the kid Listy after Listerine the mouth wash or something after a TV commercial.;)

Parents who name their kid Like or Facebook should be hung by their thumbs.

Well, I can easily think of other body parts from which that poor thing's daddy could be hung, in order to punish him while preventing any more descendancy from him. X-D

... You Like Like


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?

An obsession indeed. What the hell is wrong with this world?? To use something as mindless as Fuglybook is one thing, but to name your child as if youre talking as a teenager?
"Uhhh, Like would you uhh like come over here like right now, so I can like uhh change your diaper so I can uh like can get back to my facebook and sell myself like everyone like uhhh else does on facebook cause uhh Im like so desperate for attention?"

I had a Facebook account at the beginning of Facebook. When the personal data issues started showing I deleted it.
Just wanted to share pics and things with my kids and friends.
Nothing is sacred with money grubbing hungry whores.
Very, very sad.

ANYBODY HERE remember Like Cola from the 1980's?!?

1619.5.2011 3:23

What about the job of the child if he/she succeeds in growing up without being beaten up to death or committing suicide?

President Like? Judge Like? I don't think so. Maybe a company called "Like Burgers" or "Like Cleaning"?

And if someone does not like Like... That would be a paradox!

Hmmm... Maybe I should leave it here before I get infected with these new levels of human dumbness. It still surprises me how stupid people can be.

I think I would name my child Blue Screen Of Death.

2420.5.2011 15:03

Reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld where George wants to name his kid "Seven" and Jerry makes fun of him by saying "why don't you name him 'Mug'.........Mug Costanza or Cereal........Cereal Costanza".

Too funny. But seriously, this is the biggest injustice to that poor kid. What a bunch of dumb, fuc*o parents with no regard for anyone but themselves and their own need for individuality.

Can't agree more, was listening to a radio show once and the guest speaker had written a book about strange or funny names parent gave to their kids... The author at first started out think it would be humorous, an example for one kid was "Peter Rabbet". The author noticed after getting into the project how depressing the subject matters started becoming. Specifically the suicide rate was for kids with funny names have a much higher average, not to mention other emotional problems from ridicule and embarrassment then other kids. Might be funny or cute for the parents but definitely not for the kids. I simply can't see how any loving parents would do this kind of crap to their kid.
