A Baby Named Google

Recommended Posts

When search engine expert Elias Kai and his wife Carol were thinking about what to call their new-born baby, they wanted to find a name with a difference – and unusually, they ended up naming him after an internet search engine.

 

Google Kai was born in the Swedish town of Kalmar on 12th September.

 

Elias Kai, who is Lebanese and a loyal reader of The Local, says that he’s a “great fan†of the search engine, but says the name means more to him than that.

 

“Googol means 1 followed by 100 zeros, and I want my son to have lots of friends – I want him to be social, so the name also symbolises this.â€

 

“Besides, it’s original,†he adds.

 

“Carol knows how serious I am, and knows how much I love Google services,†Elias insists.

 

As befits his celebrity status, Google Kai even has his own website, complete with photos and a blog.

 

The search engine’s owners professed to be delighted at the news of the first Google baby.

 

“We wish him long life and good health, and hope his schoolmates aren't too hard on him,†the company’s in-house blogger wrote.

 

The Swedish tax authority, known for being sniffy about allowing unusual baby names, did not stand in the way of the Kais.

 

“They just thought it was funny,†Elias told The Local.

 

Perhaps fortunately for young Google, he will have a couple of other names to choose from if his parents’ chosen moniker doesn’t suit him – Elias and Carol have also given him the names Oliver Christian.

 

There aren’t any nicknames for baby Google yet, although Elias says he’s giving it some thought.

 

“Googlie might be nice,†he says.

 

As for names for Google’s potential future siblings, Elias and Carol say that Boogol, Giggol and Gaggol are all possibilities.

Assalamu Alaikum, It is the right of a child that their parents choose a name with good meaning to it.

 

Hopefully we will not have a little girl Yahoo anytime soon.Wassalamu Alaikum, masooma.

Google, John, and Larry are doing a research project together for school.

 

John says, "Hey Google, can you look up 'molecular biology' on the Internet?"

 

Google says, "Sure, which search engine you want me to use?"
