TORONTO, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- A Toronto couple who put the name of their newborn girl to a Facebook vote said Internet users picked Melania as the infant's moniker.
Rommy and Robert Alpinelli said 2,862 of the participants in the poll of 20,000 people voted for Melania, with Aria in second with 2,853 votes, the Toronto Sun reported Thursday.
Rommy Alpinelli said the vote was organized by Web site FabFind and suggested to her by a friend who works for the social commerce Web site.
"At first I was a little apprehensive," Alpinelli said. "What if it was a name I didn't like? But then there were rules in place, like no vulgar names, and things like that."
Voting officially ended at 3 p.m. Tuesday, when baby Melania was born and given her name.
"I love it," Alpinelli said. "There's something different about it. It's very pretty. It's feminine, but strong for when she gets older."
