    What if "Facebook" changes their name due to a split in ownership or new owners, etc. What is the kid going to think of their name then. Please consider what you child is going to go through at school. What,… for short you're going to call them, "Face" or "FB" ?? Boy, I can think of some many cruel comments/names kids could, no would use against your child. People.. think of your child, not what you think is cute now, or what it will get for you, like in the News. Don't use your child, love, care, adore, keep them safe and away from harm… and give them a descent normal nice name, something "they" can live with. Being different can be good but can also bring additional hardships to children while they are growing up, there are already even challenges for kids, why make it worse for them. Think before doing something foolish and damaging to your kid.

    This is called the impact of technology. People should at least think before doing something. Naming kids by getting influenced by social networking sites is ridiculous. These sites have become a big part of the lives of people today.
