A cryptocurrency enthusiast caused a stir on Twitter after allegedly naming his first kid after Cardano, the six-largest cryptocurrency.

His tweet was not left unnoticed by Input Output CEO Charles Hoskinson, who welcomed the baby to the world.

The cryptocurrency community was not on board with the decision, cracking jokes about the name choice. Some are concerned that the kid might end up being bullied by peers because of his name:

Meanwhile, the "ADA" comes from English writer and mathematician Ada Lovelace.

This is not the first time that cryptocurrencies have inspired baby names. In 2018, a couple named a kid after Bitcoin to express "gratitude" to the top cryptocurrency.
