This should trend: a mother has christened her baby girl Hashtag Jameson.

However, instead of taking to Twitter, which spawned the now ubiquitous preface, the mother posted the announcement on Facebook, compounding her apparent #fail, the Daily Mail reported.

Hashtags are used to highlight keywords on microblogging site Twitter.

While it is not clear whether the screenshot is a joke, the possibility that a child has been named hashtag still exists.

While some have considered that the little girl will grow up to be the living embodiment of the degradation of the English language, others have simply despaired for the mother, whose last name is Jameson.

The caption that accompanies the photo says: Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 o'clock last nite. She weys 8pounds and i luv her so much!!!!!! (sic)

The image has spread across the internet and been met with universal criticism.

In 2005, a Swedish couple named their baby boy Oliver Google Kai.

The news that there could be a child named after the word most associated with Twitter is reminiscent of the Israeli couple last year who named their girl after the Facebook 'Like' button.
