Los Angeles - An Egyptian man has named his baby girl Facebook.

Gamal Ibrahim chose the strange name for his newborn to celebrate the country's January 25 revolution.

 The revolution led to the end of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year reign as president - which was partly organised on the popular social networking website.

The new father said he wished to "express his joy at the achievements made by the January 25 youth".

Family, friends and neighbours have flocked to bestow gifts on baby Facebook and are overjoyed with her unusual name.
