Now, before you break your heads and dig into your computer science books. The kid has been named "HTML". The name is a result of his father's passion for his job, and it is clearly breaking the internet. In case you want to know the name of the father, he is called Mac. A Mac that has got nothing to do with Apple.

The name of the baby was announced on social media by his aunt Sincerely Pascals, who hails from Bulacan in the Philippines. She took to Facebook to share the picture of the baby and wrote, "Welcome to the world HTML' the child's full name is Hypertext Markup Language Rayo Pascual".

He has another sister who is called Spaghetti 85 whose kids are named Cheese one is called Cheese Pimento and the other is Parmesan Cheese. They also have cousins named Design and Research. So this family clearly loves food and technology.

However, some people on the internet were not generous with their comments on the name of the baby. Taking to Facebook, Sincerely had lashed out at the people who criticized the name. She wrote, "People are so pathetic for normalizing bullying because of the name.Don't worry, Hypertext Markup Language doesn't make sense to preschool and gradeschoolers. And in any case he gets bullied, don't worry, guys, WE CAN MANAGE. We won't ask for your help so don't be stressed. Is it okay now?

"What else did the others say... Did you make fun of it? Didn't think about it? Earning money? Famewhore? Ugh.. proof that empty cans sound the loudest. In the first place, you shared that. I didn't read anything Please like, share, and follow in my post. Btw, I'll give the credits to you for making my family known ONCE AGAIN. Also, get a life. Teach yourself and your kids to accept the reality & to respect that not all people have usual names RATHER THAN TEACHING MY FAMILY WHAT AND WHAT NOT TO NAME OUR KIDS," she added

This isn't the first time a name has caught so much attention. Elon Musk, the Tesla Honcho, had named his baby X A-Xii.
