Do You “Like” My Name?

A couple in Israel recently decided to name one of their children Like, because of liking things on facebook. They have two other children. One is named Dvash (which means honey) and the other is named Pie (as in strawberry rhubarb).

I might be the only person in the world who doesn’t have an issue with Gwenyth Paltrow naming her kid Apple, but I was horrified by the whole Monroe and Moroccan disaster, and I have to take a stand here and say that this is an absolute shanda. I understand wanting a unique name for your child, but this is not an acceptable option. But perhaps I should be more succinct: DISLIKE.
