Riyadh: A Saudi national renamed his son Rayyan after Turkish President Recept Tayyip Erdogan.

The announcement sparked a controversy and pushed others to create a hashtag #Erdogan Al-Otaibi.

The father appeared in a video recording hugging his son and expressing his delight at the failure of the attempted military coup in Turkey.

Other Saudi nationals said that the father should have renamed his boy after one of the soldiers who fell in line of duty defending the homeland, reported local Arabic daily Akhbar24.
