As long as there is no licence to breed expect more of this.

What a couple of dumbass losers. It's a real human being you're naming, not a goldfish. How can you expect a couple parents who name their kid hashtag (like it's some kind of joke) to raise a child.

4 internet-inspired baby names

By The Week's Editorial Staff | The Week – Tue, Nov 27, 2012

http://news.yahoo.co...-165500859.html


With names like Hashtag and Facebook, these kids have been definitively marked as children of the 21st century

1. The American girl named Hashtag
Last Saturday, a couple gave birth to a baby girl whom, in an homage to Twitter, they reportedly named Hashtag. "Hashtag will likely grow up to be a happy, healthy, beautiful adult woman, but we can't help but think she's going to face a great deal of scrutiny and teasing on the grade-school playgrounds," says Chase Hoffberger at The Daily Dot. Do you think they'll call her Tag for short?


2. The Swedish boy named Google
In 2005, a search-engine marketer and avid fan of all things Google wrote the company to alert them to the birth of his first child, Oliver Google Kai. "When we first knew that my wife Carol is pregnant, I said, 'we will name our child Google,'" the elder Kai wrote in his letter. Surprisingly, his wife agreed to the name, since she "knows how much I adore Google services." Google responded by wishing the young boy "long life and good health," adding that they hope Oliver Google Kai's "schoolmates aren't too hard on him."


3. The Egyptian girl named Facebook
During the Arab Spring in early 2011, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media tools were instrumental in igniting protests and spurring the revolution that eventually toppled President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. As a way of giving thanks, an Egyptian family chose to name their child Facebook to express "gratitude about the victories the youth of 25 January [when the revolution began] have achieved."


4. The Israeli girl named Like
Taking "inspiration from Mark Zuckerberg's own baby," says Eric Mack at CNET, an Israeli couple decided to name their baby girl Like. But when asked why they chose the name, Like Adler's father,Lior Adler, insisted that the name wasn't part of any marketing ploy, saying that he simply wanted to give his daughter a unique name... and that his wife liked it.

and this is how bullying starts... :picard:

I'm not condoning bullying... but what are you supposed to do when the parents basically paint a bull's eye on their kid and hand out darts?

One other thing that I want to say, when I was growing up and even to this day, the "#" is called the pound key. Not hashtag.

Technically, it's the "number sign".

IE look on your pencil, probably has #2 on it. That literally means Number 2.

Exactly, I was going to post this somewhere else but didn't bother because I thought no one would understand what I was talking about.

Pretty sad...

I bet the first people to name their kid John or Anna were considered crazy too!


I doubt it.

John is derived from the Latin Ioannes, Iohannes, which is in turn a form of the Greek Ἰωάννης, Iōįnnēs. This Greek name is a form of the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן, Yōḥanan, which means "Graced by Yahweh".

Anna is a Latin form of the Greek name Greek Ἄννα and the Hebrew name Hannah (Hebrew: חַנָּה Ḥannāh‎, meaning "favor" or "grace").

As you can see these names, as 90% of names, have a meaning behind them.

Parents enjoy 15 minutes of fame, child enjoys a lifetime of suffering

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

There's a fine line between being unique and being idiotic.... and those parents have crossed that line a long time ago.

It's not different than the parents who name their child Adolf Hitler.... I mean, come on....

Really? I always thought that show was terrible. I'm baffled it lasted as long as it did.
