CAIRO, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- An Egyptian man said he named his newborn daughter Facebook in honor of the role the site played in the recent uprising against former President Hosni Mubarak.

The man, whose name was not given, said he chose the name Facebook Jamal Ibrahim after the Facebook social networking Web site played a large part in organizing the protests against Mubarak that led to his resignation, The Guardian reported Tuesday.
