US technology giant Google has sent gifts to a baby boy named Google by their parents in Indonesia, local media reported on July 3. 

Google was born in November but his birth certificate went viral last week after his mother posted it on social media. 

Some online commenters quipped that he would find it hard to search his name on Google.  

“They sent several items as a token of appreciation, including a jumper,” the baby’s mother, Ella Karina, was quoted as saying by Tribunnews online newspaper. 

“Google congratulated us and expressed hope that baby Google will help many people,” Ella said. 

Ella said she was initially opposed to her husband’s idea to name their second child Google, but now she has no regrets.  

“We thank Google for their attention. We are more confident now.” – dpa
