News: Couple names baby girl ‘Like’
A couple from Israel has named their newborn daughter ‘Like’ after the social networking feature on Facebook.
The girl’s new moniker was inspired by a button which allows users to express their endorsement of photos, status updates and links.
Lior Alder and his wife Vardit live in the town of Hod Hasharon just outside Tel Aviv and said they wanted a name for their daughter that was ‘modern and innovative’.
They succeeded in choosing an original name, with their child reportedly the first and only person in the country with the name ‘Like’.
“In our opinion it’s the modern equivalent of the name Ahava [Love],” Adler told Israeli newspaper Maariv.
“It’s just my way of saying to my fantastic daughter, ‘Love’.”
The most common names for girls in Israel are Noa, Maya and Tamar, according to the Haaretz newspaper.
The parents have a fondness for innovative names. One of their daughters is named Pie — after the popular British food, while their other daughter is named Vash, which is honey in Hebrew.
Reaction to his daughter’s name has been mixed, Adler said.
“When I posted her picture and name on Facebook I got 40 ‘likes’,” he said.
“Considering that I have only a little more than 100 friends on the network that’s a lot.”
Not everyone was keen on the name and some friends “simply didn’t believe it,” Adler said.
“I believe there will be people who will lift an eyebrow … but it is my girl and that’s what’s fun about it.”

Knowing what TV shows your girl is into can give you a BIG head start over other guys.
Women get OBSESSED with their favorite shows and become invested in the characters on a deep, emotional level.
That may sound crazy, but binge-watching these shows influences their ENTIRE perception of sex, romance, and relationships.
