Egyptian Names His Firstborn “Facebook”

I’m all for giving credit where credit is due, but this is a bit of a stretch. Naming your firstborn child Facebook would be the ultimate compliment to the company credited with helping a social revolution in Egypt. I wonder how the name sounds in Arabic? I sure hope for her sake it sounds much better than in English.

While the baby girl could just have easily been called “YouTube,” “Twitter” “Google” or even “Cellphone Camera,” it seems like Facebook has become the umbrella symbol for how social media can spread the message of freedom.
