IHOP announces it's changing its iconic name

International House Of Pancakes Is Going From IHOP To IHOb The company says it will reveal on Monday what the "b" in IHOb stands for.

What do you think the "b" in IHOP's new name could be?

The popular breakfast chain hinted at the possibilities on Twitter with options like biscuits, bacon, butternut squash and also a curve ball choice of barnacles.

"For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP". Its curious customers would have to wait until June 11 to find out. Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOb.

It is unclear whether the name change would be permanent but IHOP rep Stephanie Peterson confirmed to Fox News that it is taking place. Arabic has no "p" sound, and speakers of the language usually substitute a "b".

Stella Creasy: House must commit to abortion legal change
The decision comes weeks after the Republic of Ireland's landmark referendum in which the abortion ban was lifted. The UK Government has ultimate responsibility to legislate to reform Northern Ireland's inhumane abortion laws.

So for many Arabs, IHOP has always been known as IHOB.

"Someone Arab has bought significant share of IHOP and now they're the International House of Bancakes", said another. And yes, this entire thing could very well just be a publicity/bublicity stunt by the breakfast chain, which has 1,671 locations in the U.S.

The company's executive director of communications only said that they are "serious about the quality of food and our menu, and this name change really reflects that".

When a tweet from Patrick Ford begged the company to "stop b-ing elusive and tell me what is the answer b!", the company responded, "batience, Batrick, batience".
