A father got angry after getting his daughter’s name “Meta” tattooed on his face just days before Facebook adopted the new name.

Gleb Horoshy, 31, and wife Autumn, 33, greeted their baby daughter in February, thinking her name was completely unique.

A few months later, the first-time father from Germany decided to have her name painted on his cheek as a tribute.

But he claims he felt like a social media follower and walking advertisement after Facebook announced last month it was changing its name to meta.

However, the tattoo artist from Berlin said he could see the funny side of the mishap.

He said, “When Facebook changed our name to our daughter’s name, my wife freaked out. I kept seeing it everywhere – it made me laugh, it was so surreal.

“We tried to choose a name that wasn’t popular so that it would be unique and now it’s everywhere.

“It was my first face tattoo, but I don’t regret it because I love my daughter. My daughter’s name will always be very special to me, no matter what. ”

“I joke with people that I have it because I love Facebook and Instagram so much. Facebook – or Meta – should pay me for advertising for free! “

Gleb, originally from Ukraine, and Autumn, originally from the USA, named their daughter Meta after the Greek word “metamorphosis” to symbolize the beginning of the next phase of their relationship.

You never expected the name to be everywhere less than a year later – after it became the name of Mark Zuckerberg’s social media empire.
