Would you call it Child Abuse?

Man names his first-born daughter ‘Facebook’

A young Egyptian man has decided to call his first-born daughter Facebook in a tribute to the social media site’s role in his country’s political revolution.

Proud father Jamal Ibrahim, who was swept up in enthusiasm over the revolt against President Hosni Mubarak, gave his daughter the unorthodox name to express his thanks for developments in Egypt since anti-government protests started on 25 January, according to Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram.

The girl’s full name is Facebook Jamal Ibrahim, and family and friends have reportedly gathered around the newborn to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook.

Egypt is home to five million Facebook users - the highest number in the Middle East - and the website was instrumental in galvanising civilians for peaceful protests that eventually toppled Mubarak.

Following the President’s resignation on 11 February, graffiti artists scribed 'Thank you Facebook' on walls across Cairo.

During the uprising, thousands of Egypt-themed groups and pages appeared on Facebook, and the military government even started using the site to try and reach out to Egyptian youth.

A whopping 32,000 groups and 14,000 pages were created in this time.

Facebook has received many gifts from young people who were overjoyed by both her arrival and her inventive name, reports Al-Ahram.

It would have been better had he changed his own name instead of condemming his poor child to a childhood of taunting and jibes.
