Lior and Vardit Adler of Israel were looking for a unique name for their baby daughter, and boy did they find it. Like Adler was named after the Facebook button, and papa Adler says it’s “the modern equivalent of the name Ahava [Love],” except it’s not, because it’s like.

And how is little Pie Adler supposed to feel now that she doesn’t have the weirdest name in the family? Yes, the Adlers have a daughter named after a dessert.  —PZS

‘Like’ is a better choice than naming the lil’ tyke ‘Yahu’ after the Prime Minister. How’d you like to grow up to be an entrancing Israeli hooker or hoyden, and have your clients yelling ‘Oi, Yahoo’ at you across a crowded convention floor?
