Alert the (social) media: Hashtag is now a baby name.

Transitioning from their feed to midnight feedings, the Jameson family reportedly decided to name their newborn daughter after the popular Twitter term.

Born around 10 p.m. Saturday, the baby girl's arrival was announced via Facebook by her mother.

"Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 oclock last nite. She weys [sic] 8pounds and I luv her so much!!!!!" the message reads, along with a photo of the sleeping newborn.

Although PEOPLE is unable to verify if "Hashtag" is the baby girl's legal name, a typo or a joke, she's in good company nonetheless – last year, an Egyptian man named his son Facebook after the social media platform's role in his country's revolution.
