Two Idiots Name Their Baby Girl ‘Like’ After the Facebook Button

Facebook LikeJesus Diaz writes on Gizmodo:

Lior and Vardit Adler just had a baby girl. She’s probably all cute and wrinkly! But they hate her soo much that they named her Like, in honor of the Like button in Facebook. Of course, they explain it differently:

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 this is one of the most famous icons in the world, he said, joking that the name could be seen as a modern version of the traditional Jewish name Ahuva, which means “beloved.”

I believe there will be people who will lift a eyebrow, but it is my girl and that’s what’s fun about it.

Yes, dear readers, you are totally right: These parents — who live in Hod Hasharon, a town north-east of Tel Aviv, Israel — are idiots. Idiots, idiots, idiots. Idiots. Idiots who named their first two children Dvash — Hebrew for honey — and Pie. Compared to Like, those names seem as normal as John and Jane.

      Most names mean dumb things, but because they come from languages other than English, we don’t think about their original meaning unless someone asks “what does your name mean?” Is it any different than to be named Rosemary? How about Candy? April? Seven (Seinfeld reference)?

      All the more so because “Like” is an English word that is as valid of a name in their language as Amy, Cher or Mindy is in ours (all of which mean love in their original languages).

        Way to fail on the Seinfeld reference. The name George recommended was Seven in honor of Mickey Mantle who wore the number 7.

          Apologies, fixed it, love Seinfeld and I’m normally good with these things, but in my defense, I remembered something about six and in the scene where he’s trying to convince them not to use seven he suggested six, nine, and fourteen.

    My daughter, Facebook Google-It, my son, Nike Dell, and I all disagree.  Like is a wonderful name!  We “Like” it!

    The name Laura means penis in Pakistani. I’m sure they think we have plenty of idiots in the US.
