On May 11th, a couple in Israel brought home a beautiful, healthy baby girl, and named her Like. Named after the Facebook button, Like’s parents said they that the name was, “short and sweet” and that they wanted a name “unique, creative and totally new”. Unusual names are definitely a trend right now, especially amongst celebrities, so why not the name Like? The family decided to make her a Facebook page, and she already has 5000 people who like the page!
Another trend that is growing in popularity are parents ensuring that they pick their babies names with available URL’s to save for their children when they are older. I wouldn’t be surprised if more people started to strategically pick their children’s names or even name their children after technology; we are in the 21st century after all. To all of the Cindy’s and Bob’s of today, make space for the Mac’s and Page’s of tomorrow!
Can you think of any other tech-inspired names?
