Destines her to a life full of puns.

File this under the overflowing cupboard of ‘absurd and stupid’. An Israeli couple has named their new born daughter after Facebook’s Like button. Yes, the cute bundle little thing will be called Like.

Apparently, they never thought their daughter would likely live a life full of puns. See, what I mean?

Lior and Vardit Adler were looking for something unique to name their daughter as, and probably inspired by the ‘Likes’ they received on Facebook after they posted a picture of hers on it, they thought wise to name her just that. That part of the story is not confirmed as true, however, and could be made up. Un’like’ly, though. Just guessing.

As CNN points out, Adlers aren’t the only one who have taken baby names to absurd levels. Another couple had recently named their child Facebook after the social network’s important part in Eygpt’s revolution. Another man had offered to name his son Batman if he could score 500,000 fans on his Facebook page.

Just a thought: how would Like’s future boyfriend propose to her? “Hey Like, I you…no-no pun intended”.
