Egyptian Dad Names Child ‘Facebook’

This may seem odd at first if you cannot relate with the reason. But if you are reading news all the time, then you must know that Egypt recently had won their wish: the ouster of their ex-president Hosni Mubarak.

Because of that, a man in Egypt has named his newborn daughter “Facebook” in honor of the role the social media network played in bringing about a revolution, according to a new report. Awww, how cute!

Gamal Ibrahim, a 20-something, gave his daughter the name “to express his joy at the achievements made by the January 25 youth,” according to a report in Al-Ahram, one of Egypt’s most popular newspapers.

Many young people used Facebook and other social media networks to organize the protests, which began January 25 and ultimately led to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak after 30 years in power.
