A bouncing baby HTML was born to a Bulacan couple yesterday, and—fittingly—the internet has welcomed the little one with open arms.

The baby boy, whose full name is Hypertext Markup Language Rayo Pascual, has had his birth announcement go viral in the hours after his aunt posted on Facebook. His father, Mac Pascual, is reportedly a web developer—hence the name.

“[The baby] will grow up to hack the Pentagon. It’s in his name,” one comment reads, in Filipino. Another commenter joked, “How are you, HTML? HTML, what’s your HTML?”

It may be an unusual name, but at least it’s not X Æ A-Xii Musk.
