Egyptian family names daughter “Facebook”

Whilst most people are content to add their names to Facebook one Egyptian family has gone a step further and named their daughter “Facebook.”

The dodgy moniker was papped on the kid following a recent January 25 revolution in the North African nation, an event the family attribute (in part) to Zuckerberg’s monster.

Local media reports say that the twenty something parents were avid readers of the “We are Khaled Said” Facebook page, a hub of dissent focussed on the martyrdom of said protestor.

Facebook (the social media site) has been lauded in the country with graffiti appearing across Cairo reading “Thank you Facebook”.

Quite what the young girl herself will make of her playground baiting title in the years ahead can only be surmised.
