Whatever happened to naming your kid Anne or John?

The couple are reportedly fond of unusual baby monikers, having given their other daughters different (and decidedly sweeter)names–Dvash (which is “Honey” in Hebrew) and Pie.

While “Like” isn’t necessarily as connected to the social network as “Facebook” is (obviously!), the verb is almost certain to conjure of associations with showing approval online.
