A Newborn Baby is Named “Facebook”

An Egyptian man in his 20s just named his baby girl Facebook Jamal Ibrahim. A resident of the Ibrahimya region, he named her after the social networking site in order to show his gratitude for Facebook’s role in the January 25 protests.

Maybe it's brave or creative or progressive or a rising trend.
But okay. I have so many questions. Was this an impulse decision or did he sleep on it?
What if he gets sick of Facebook (the site) and wants to cancel his profile?
Also, I wonder what Mark Zuckerberg is thinking right now. I mean, someone named a child after something Mark basically invented.

Well, it sounds better than some silly made up names AND it has a greater cultural/historical significance. Incredible. What influence!
