A Facebook post announcing the birth of a newborn in the

Philippines has gone viral due to the child’s unique name.

Hypertext Mark-up Language Rayo Pascual – or HTML for short

was introduced to the world via a Facebook post

from his aunt last Thursday.

The child’s father Mac Pascual, a web developer, is thought to be

responsible for choosing the unusual name as a tribute to his profession.

He told local news site inquirer.net that uncommon names run in his

family, explaining that his own name is short for Macaroni 85.

He said that one of his sisters’ official names was Spaghetti 88 and said

her two children are called Cheese Pimiento and Parmesan Cheese,

though they go by Chippy and Peewee for short.
