An Israeli girl will grow up with the name "Like" after her social networking enthused parents named her after a Facebook function.

According to Israeli radio station Galgalatz, her parents were looking for a unique name for their third daughter and originally looked at Chinese names before settling on Like.

Like's older sisters are called Pie and Dvash (the Hebrew word for honey).

Father Lior Adler said so far 50 of his 120 Facebook friends had posted that they liked the baby's name.

In February an Egyptian man named his new daughter Facebook in celebration of the website's role in triggering the Arab Spring.
