(Newser) – A baby born in November on the Indonesian island of Java was named Google, and after the story went viral, the Indonesian branch of the tech giant recently sent the family a bag of Google swag, Asia One reports. "Google Indonesia called us," the baby boy's mom says. "They expressed congratulations and wished that baby Google could grow up to be a helpful and useful person to many others." Included in the goodie bag was a onesie featuring the Google logo; see a picture of the baby wearing it here. The Jakarta Post reported last month that the parents chose the name hoping it would inspire their second child " to become as all-knowing as the ubiquitous search engine itself."
