Sadly, this isn’t the first contemptible attempt at tech-inspired baby naming. Earlier this year, a family in Egypt named their daughter “Facebook.” The child’s full name is Facebook Ibrahim, which I believe translates roughly to “Hey Kids, Please Taunt Me.”
All joking aside, this terrible trend of Net lingo baby naming has to be stopped. In order to help prevent a future generation filled with names like “Tweet Smith” and “Friend Request Jones,” I’ve come up with 10 reasonable tech-inspired monikers for geeky couples to consider.
Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments section below. Together, we can save scores of lives from being ruined.
Tech-Inspired Baby Name #1: Perl
It’s a programming language and just one letter off from a classic girl’s name — geeky and reasonable!
Tech-Inspired Baby Name #2: Mac
For the Apple fanboy who’s too unconventional to go with “Steve.”
Tech-Inspired Baby Name #3: Ruby
Another feminine programming win (and way better than “Python“).
