A mother has named her baby daughter Angela Merkel Muhammed - after the German Chancellor let her family into the country to start a new life.
The little girl was born last week to a migrant couple who fled the war in Syria in a bid to settle in Europe.
Asia Faray decided to name her daughter in honour of the 63-year-old whose policies allowed them to move there in 2015.
The St. Franziskus Hospital in the western city of Muenster confirmed her first name is Angela, her middle name is Merkel, and last name is their family name of Muhammed.
But she's not the first new Angela Merkel - another baby was given the chancellor's name by a family seeking asylum in the city of Duisburg in 2015.

This is the hilarious moment a disorientated 18-stone pig ends up in a supermarket to the astonishment of shoppers who resort to the likes of a lettuce to try to coax it outside.
The animal trotted into the Lidl supermarket, having followed customers in from the car park in the popular tourist town of Alcochete, opposite the Portuguese capital Lisbon on the east bank of the River Tagus.
Mobile phone footage taken by an astonished customer showed it making a beeline for the bananas before turning to look at the pasta and other long-life foods on offer on the shelves.
It appeared quite at home in its out-of-the-ordinary setting, resisting a sidekick by one man trying to encourage it to leave and ignoring attempts by other clients to ease it out of a fire exit with a broom and a lettuce.
The video shows the veteran calling for help six times before he goes unconscious while gasping for air. State records show nursing home staff found Dempsey unresponsive at 5:28 am. It took almost an hour for the staff to call 911 at 6:25a.m.
When a different nurse does respond, she fails to check any of his vital signs. Nuckles says she would have reprimanded the nurse for the way she responded to Dempsey. She called the video “sick.”
When nurses had difficulty getting Dempsey’s oxygen machine operational during, you can hear Nuckles and others laughing.

In 1981, Mauritania became the last country in the world to abolish slavery. Activists are arrested for fighting the practice. The government denies it exists. “On this land, everybody is exploited.” The vast Saharan nation didn’t make slavery a crime until 2007. Only one slave owner has been successfully prosecuted.
CNN An estimated 10% to 20% of Mauritania’s 3.4 million people are enslaved — in “real slavery,” according to the United Nations’ special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery, Gulnara Shahinian. If that’s not unbelievable enough, consider that Mauritania was the last country in the world to abolish slavery. That happened in 1981, nearly 120 years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States. It wasn’t until five years ago, in 2007, that Mauritania passed a law that criminalized the act of owning another person. So far, only one case has been successfully prosecuted.
The country is slavery’s last stronghold.

A Georgia family is under fire for allowing a seventh grader to wear a T-shirt that mocked liberal news network CNN on a school field trip to CNN’s Atlanta headquarters -- but the boy's parents think the school violated the First Amendment by making their son take it off.
Nancy and Stan Jester, of Dekalb, are both local elected officials, she a county commissioner and he is a member of the local school board. Their son, seventh-grader Jaxon, wore a shirt mocking the CNN logo as “FNN” with the caption, “Fake News Network.”
A teacher asked him to remove it before the tour, but the school has since apologized to the Jesters. However, the parents want an apology for Jaxon because, they say, the whole thing was his idea and he has the right to free speech.
“This year when the CNN tour was announced, my 7th grade son Jaxon asked me if he could purchase an FNN-Fake News Network shirt to wear for his field trip,” Stan Jester wrote in a blog post. “As an advocate for the First Amendment, I agreed to his request.”

Shocking mobile phone footage captures a young man high on a "zombie drug " fall out of a taxi in just his underwear hours before he tragically died.
The victim, whose name has not yet been released, was seen writhing around on the pavement after tumbling out the vehicle.
In the footage shared on social media, the man tries to put his legs back inside the taxi but doesn't appear to notice when the driver twice attempts to shut the door.
The man crawls off on his hands and knees into traffic on a busy road. Concerned passerby are seen desperately trying to guide the man to safety in Santiago, Chile.
He was rushed to hospital but sadly died hours later. Police said he took a drug, but they are still trying to identify the substance.
Kevin Caroca, who witnessed the man's disturbing struggle, said: "Be careful with what you take, especially women, a lot of the 'zombie' drugs have arrived.
"Beware of receiving anything or buying any drugs from a stranger, they can cause death."
He continued: "The taxi driver told me the guy started to hit everything in the car, and in the end, he had to stop and tell the young man to get out.
"I know about the drug from a Brazilian video.
"I saw it a few months ago and the young man had almost the same effects, spoke very fast and hit the back of the taxi so hard he almost broke the glass."
It's long been a mysterious and bewildering phenomenon - is time travel real?
But now one man, who only wants to be identified as "Noah" through fear of reprisals, swears he is really from the year 2028.
In a bizarre video sent in to Paranormal Elite, he says he has risked his life to tell those living in 2017 what the future has in store.
His bold claims, however, only include the fact that Donald Trump will still be re-elected in 2020, that Artificial Intelligence will gain momentum and Google-glasses style machines will take over.
"It is not my intent to deceive anybody," He tells the camera, his face blurred so he cannot be identified. "I want to be clear, my sole objective anybody to prove to you that time travel exsists.
"In fact I, myself, am a time traveller."
A brawl has broken out on a suburban train after a man was incensed by a group of young adults with share-bikes blocking the walkway. A large, bald man can be seen confronting a group of men, worried if the train comes to a quick stop the bikes could injure someone.

The footage was posted to Instagram on Saturday afternoon by Melbourne resident Luke Bennie.
Throughout his unusual career, Bam Margera has taken all sorts of abuse to his head, arms, legs and testicles. But up until early Saturday morning (June 12), he had never been beaten with a bat wielded by a 59-year-old woman.
Margera, the skateboarder and breakout star of "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" on MTV, was assaulted early Saturday morning following a noise complaint at The Note, the bar that Margera owns in his hometown of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Elizabeth Ray, who lives on the same block as the bar, attacked Margera with a bat at around 2 a.m. on Saturday.
She was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault and two counts of reckless endangerment. She posted $10,000 bail shortly after her arrest.
Ray professed her innocence to the Philadelphia Daily News, claiming that Margera used racial slurs during their initial argument about the noise. "He called me the n-word," she said. "I'm innocent, and he's a jackass, just like his movies."
Margera's mother April (who audiences got to know well on "Viva La Bam") suggested that this wasn't the first time her son had an altercation with Ray. "She hit him over the head with a baseball bat, and she hit him while he was walking to his car," she said, though she was not actually a witness to the incident. "There was no fight. She's just crazy and gives him a hard time all the time."
What happens when the new bride is slightly angry over family member messing up their wedding? Well, apparently the Muslim husband unleashes a wicked right cross to her cheek.
Surprisingly, not a single man or woman actually defended the bride, and instead actually applauded him.
I think it's safe to say some cultures you just don't understand.
A Good Samaritan stepped in and forced a man off a New York Subway train after he launched into a sickening rant and punched a woman in the face because she said he was 'manspreading'.
Sam Saia, 37, said she had politely asked the man to move his legs while she was sitting on the N train on Thursday, when he erupted into a violent rage, and began swearing at her, threatening her and punched her in the mouth.
Thankfully, a fellow straphanger intervened and grabbed the attacker, forcing him off at the next stop.
But Saia says she lives in fear of seeing the suspect again, who has not yet been arrested.
'That b*****d is still out there,' she told The New York Post on Friday after her commute home.
'I'm afraid he might retaliate. But I'm not going to back down.'
Apple’s diversity chief is stepping down after only six months on the job — after causing an outcry by saying that being a minority or a woman are not the only criteria for diversity, according to reports.
Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, made controversial comments last month during a One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia.
“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” the inaugural diversity chief said.
“Diversity is the human experience,” she said, according to Quartz. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”
