It has been reported by Al-Ahram (one of Egypt's larger newspapers) a twenty-something Egyptian man has named his first born daughter “Facebook” because of the popular social media sites role in organizing the protests in Tahrir Square recently.

Translated from the paper:

Man Names His Newborn Girl Facebook

A young man in his twenties wanted to express his gratitude about the victories the youth of 25th of January have achieved and chose to express it in the form of naming his firstborn girl “Facebook” Jamal Ibrahim (his name.) 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. A name [Facebook] that shocked the entire world.

What's next? Are we going to be seeing babies named after Google, Flickr, YouTube or Twitter? Who knows what's in store. I could see maybe a D-list celebrity naming their daughter after some popular website. I'm looking at you Pauly...how about Reddit Shore.
