(Google Blog) About this choice, Dr. Kai writes, "When we first knew that my wife Carol is pregnant, I said, 'we will name our child Google.' Everyone laughed and did not take me seriously. My brother said, 'Yeah, name the next one yahoo fuji nikon." And then, says Dr. Kai, the day came to make the baby official in the Swedish Registry. "I was with my friend Magnus Foss and my wife Carol, and I said yes, GOOGLE KAI. Carol knew how serious I am Â she knows how much I adore Google services."
Although there are many fans of the search engine king, most of them pale in comparison to this father. Naming a child after a company is probably considered an honor in Lebanon, (where the father is from) although if the boy lived in America his parents would be considered an oddity in the public arena. As long as nobody names a child after Microsoft or Yahoo, then the world will still retain its sanity.
