Facebook-Loving Couple Names Baby “Like”

Think you like Facebook? Think again.

An Israeli couple likes Facebook so much that they named their newborn daughter "Like." You know as in the like icon on the popular Palo Alto-based social-networking site.

"To me it is important to give my children names that are not used anywhere else, at least not in Israel," the father told the German Press Agency dpa."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 is Lior and Vardit Adler's third child. The other two are named Dvash (Hebrew for "Honey") and Pie.

The couple said the sound of the name was also important to them. Lior says Like has a "nice, international ring to it."

Lior and Vardit Adler's friends and families were described as reacting "incredulously" when they were told of little girl's name.

They are welcome to "unlike" Mark Zuckerberg and his creation.
