Twitter Craze: Meet the baby named Hashtag (PHOTO)
In what could be possibly the silliest name ever given to a child, it appears that one mother has christened her baby girl Hashtag Jameson. However, instead of taking to Twitter, which spawned the now ubiquitous preface, the mother posted the announcement on Facebook, compounding her apparent #fail.
While it is not clear whether the screenshot what is clearly an official birth announcement is a joke or a literary mistake, the possibility that a child has been named hashtag still exists.
While some have considered that the little girl will grow up to be the living embodiment of the degradation of the English language, other’s have simply despaired for the mother, whose last name is Jameson.
The news that there could be a child named after the word most associated with Twitter is reminiscent of the Israeli couple last year who named their girl after the Facebook Like button.
Lior and Vardit Adler were apparently looking to call their child something unique so they stumped for the Facebook moniker to enable their child to stand out from the crowd.
But they are not the only parents who have picked names inspired by the social media revolution.
Gamal Ibrahim of Egypt called his baby girl ‘Facebook’ in honour of the websites role in the Arab Spring of last year in that country which led to the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak after 30 years in power.
