Egyptian Parents Name New Baby ‘Facebook’


“Congratulations on your new baby girl, she’s beautiful! What’s her name?” 


“Oh, it’s on Facebook?” 

“No, her name is Facebook.”

I’m sure that’s a conversation that new parent Jamal Ibrahim will be having for some time to come. To honor the recent role that Facebook played in the revolution that took place in Egypt, TechCrunch reports that Ibrahim decided to name his newborn daughter 'Facebook.'

Her official name is Facebook Jamal Ibrahim. 

The impetus for the name choice is admirable, but naming a child 'Facebook' is a bold move. Can you imagine the schoolyard nicknames she'll be getting?
