"If once people gave biblical names and that was the icon, then today this is one of the most famous icons in the world," Lior Adler told DPA.

Following the protests that deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, an Egyptian man named his daughter Facebook, honoring the social network for the part it played in mobilizing demonstrators.

"The girl's family, friends and neighbors in the Ibrahimya region gathered around the newborn to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook," the Egyptian paper Al-Ahram reported in February.
