Egyptian Baby Named.....Facebook!
O.K, so I know that this blog is all about celebrity news and so on, but this story causght my eye due to it's total amazingness. And if celebrities can give their children ridiculous names (I'm looking at you Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin) then why can't randon Egyptian revolutionaries?
After the extensive use of social networking sites to instigate and coordinate the recent revolution in Egypt, a man named Gamil Ibrahim has named his newborn daughter after the mother of all social netowrks, Facebook. He spoke to local newspaper Al-Arham, expressing "his joy at the achievements made by the January 25 Youth." The baby had received many gifts from local people, many of whom were involved in the protests, and everyone seems very pleased at the name dedication.
Defos my story of the day.
