Baby named after Facebook feature

An Israeli couple have named their daughter after the 'like' feature on Facebook.

Like is named after the button on the social networking site that allows users to express their approval of photographs, links and status updates.

Lior Adler and his wife Vardit, of Hod Hasharon, near Tel Aviv, said they wanted an original name that was "modern and innovative".

Mr Adler's father told Israeli newspaper Maariv that his daughter would be the first in the country to be called Like.

"In our opinion it's the modern equivalent of the name Ahava (Love). It's just my way of saying to my fantastic daughter, 'Love'," he said.

Like's parents have a fondness for unusual names. One of their daughters is called Pie - after the English food - and the other is called Vash - Hebrew for Honey.

Mr Adler said the reaction to the name had been mixed.

"When I posted her picture and name on Facebook I got 40 'likes'," he said. "Considering that I have only a little more than 100 friends on the network that's a lot."

But not everyone was keen on the name and some friends "simply didn't believe it," Mr Adler said.

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