A couple living in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır’s Ergani disrict have named their new-born baby “Evet,” meaning yes in Turkish, to draw attention to the country’s April 16 referendum on the charter amendment, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Feb. 15.

The mother, Songül Çelik, said the name was a mutual decision and wanted to highlight the importance of the referendum.
