Mum names baby daughter Hashtag

Hashtag /Facebook

A mother has been criticised after naming her newborn baby daughter Hashtag.

She announced the name, after the Twitter symbol, with a photo and post on Facebook, reports The Sun.

It said: "Hashtag Jameson was born at 10oclock last night. She weys 8pounds and I luv her so much!!!!"

Hashtags are words or phrases preceded by a # symbol, used on Twitter to identify a subject.

But the name soon attracted its own Twitter hashtags, including #TerribleParenting, #FoolishParents, #YourParentsHateYou and #StupidestNameEver.

One user wrote: "That child is going to need serious therapy." Another tweeted: "This is horrible and cruel."

Last year Israelis Lior and Vardit Adler called their daughter Like, after the approval button on Facebook.
