Popular Philippines web designer, Mac Pascual has stirred reactions from netizens over the unusual name he gave his newborn baby.

The web developer who welcomed a baby with his partner last week named the baby, ‘Hypertext Mark-up Language Rayo Pascual or HTML’ for short.

It was gathered that the proud father chose the unusual name for his child in honour of his profession. Pascaul told local news site inquirer.net that uncommon names run in his family, explaining that his own name is short for Macaroni 85.

Sighting more instances, he revealed one of his sisters’ official names was Spaghetti 88 and claimed her two children are called Cheese Pimiento and Parmesan Cheese, though they go by Chippy and Peewee for short.

Meanwhile, his mum, Salie Rayo Pascual, told the website that she is delighted to welcome her child and said relatives were pleased with the choice of name.

HTML’s aunt, Sincerely Pascual – full name Sincerely Yours Pascual, shared a photo of the newborn on Facebook and captioned it, “Welcome to the world HTML”.
