Yes, someone named their kid Facebook, and no, it wasn’t Mark Zuckerberg. An Egyptian man named his daughter Facebook to celebrate the social media site’s role in protests in Egypt against then-president Hosni Mubarak. Activists used the website to organize demonstrations that ultimately led to Mubarak’s exit. So even though the guy had a good reason behind the name choice, maybe he could’ve gone with something a little more low-key? This moniker is definitely newsfeed-worthy, but that’s not necessarily a good thing.
