Qatari parents name baby Fifa after World Cup bid

Qatar shocked the world when it was chosen over many countries including the US to host the 2022 World Cup. A couple paid tribute to the honor by naming their daughter FIFA, after the Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Fifa was born on Dec. 2, while her mother was in labor it was announced Qatar had
won the bid.

“When I was in labor I heard that Qatar was picked ahead of many other countries to host the World Cup finals, so my husband and I decided to name her Fifa. We saw that Qataris were truly overjoyed with the historic award and we wanted to contribute to the celebrations in our own way,” Fifa’s mom said

Fifa will be 12 when the World Cup will be hosted in Qatar. I wonder where Fifa will end up on this year’s Most Popular Baby Names list?
