Romainian Couple Names Baby Yahoo

Update: Turns out this was all a hoax. See what The Register has to say about it.

A Romanian couple who met on Yahoo and later married just had a baby. So, to honor the Internet service, they named their new son Yahoo.

According to an article on Boost Marketing, Cornelia and Nonu Dragoman wanted to show thier gratitude to the website that is so important to them. “We named him Lucian Yahoo, one name after my father and the other from the computer,” said Cornelia. “These were the two elements which guided my life.”

I wonder what Dorothy Com thinks of this.
