The Facebook option to “like” has become a cultural phenomenon. It is the button we use to quickly show a mere sign of appreciation. The Facebook “Like” option has become a daily routine for billions of us, but a couple in Israel decided to name their baby “Like”. After the spreading of the news the term “baby named like” becomes one of top ten trendy search phrase on yahoo.
However, according to Lior and Vardit Adler from northeast of Tel Aviv, they didn’t necessarily name her after the popular behavioral pattern on everyone’s favorite social media website.
The father tells the German Press Agency DPA on Monday that “to me it is important to give my children names that are not used anywhere else, at least not in Israel.”
“It’s short and sweet,” Vardit Adler, Like’s mother, told Reuters on Tuesday. “It’s very important to me and to my husband that the names we give our children are unique, creative and totally new,” she said.
Six-day-old Like has two older sisters, 10-year-old Dvash, Hebrew for honey, and five-year-old Pie, “as in apple pie,” Adler said.
“I’m not worried about other children teasing Like. Dvash and Pie don’t seem to mind their special names and nobody teases them,” Adler said.
Will Like like her name? Who knows? Like’s father, Lior, even expresses jokingly that the name could be seen as a modern version of the Jewish name Ahuva, which means “beloved”.
