Israeli couple dub sprog 'Like'

Luckless nipper joins siblings 'Pie' and 'Vash'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

An Israeli couple inspired by the spawn of Zuckerberg have dubbed their unfortunate daughter "Like", the BBC reports.

Lior Adler and missus Vardit slapped the sprog with the unique moniker in honour of the Facebook button which allows users to express approval of their chums' posts.

Proud dad Adler explained to the Maariv newspaper: "We named her 'Like' because it's modern and innovative. I checked that the name does not exist elsewhere in the country, that was the main condition for me."

He justified: "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'."

When it comes to offbeat names for kids, the Adlers have a bit of previous. Due to the couple's love of cooking, their other two daughters are named "Pie" (as in steak and kidney pie), and "Vash" – the Hebrew for honey.

Adler reckons that when he first posted a snap of his newborn on Facebook, he got 40 "likes". He noted: "Considering that I have only a little more than 100 friends on the network that's a lot." ®
