With "Zuckerberg" Out of the Question, Egyptian Man Names Newborn Daughter Facebook

Print comment Post Comments
In an incredibly enthusiastic display of gratitude for the role Facebook played in the January 25 protests (which Malcolm Gladwell asserts had nothing to do with anything), an Egyptian man has named his firstborn daughter after the social-networking giant.

After Facebook Jamal Ibrahim began her life in a rapidly-changing Egypt, newspaper Al-Ahram reported, "The girl's family, friends and neighbors in the Ibrahimya region gathered around the new born to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook. 'Facebook' received many gifts from the youth who were overjoyed by her arrival and the new name."

One can assume the name "Zuckerberg" was quickly nixed by friends and family, and "Mark" just didn't have enough, I dunno, snap to it.
