Parents Name Daughter After Internet Provider to Get Free Wi-Fi for 18 Years
2753  Light Myanmar 

A Swiss couple has named their baby daughter Twifia after Internet start-up Twifi and won themselves 18 years of free wi-fi internet.
The young couple responded to a Facebook ad from Twifi, a Swiss Internet provider, which dared parents to name their newborn Twifus (if it was a boy) or Twifia (if it was a girl) in exchange for 18 years of free internet. The parents, aged 30 and 35, ultimately decided that Twifia wasn’t that bad of a name, and the thought of getting free internet for 18 years and putting that money in a savings account for their daughter was appealing. So after thinking it over, they decided to make it official, putting down ‘Twifia’ as their daughter’s middle name on her birth certificate. “The more I thought about it, the more unique the name became to me, and that’s when the thing acquired its charm,” the girl’s father said. The mother wasn’t sold on the idea at first, but she eventually agreed. “It’s his child too,” the mother said. “And for me, the name Twifia also stands for connection in this context. For an eternal bond! There are much worse names. And the more often we say ‘Twifia‘, the heartier the name sounds!”
After careful consideration, the Swiss couple decided to remain anonymous, admitting that they felt “somewhat embarrassed” about their decision, and didn’t want to justify their choice of name for their daughter to anyone.
