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".

The presentation comes amid the uncertainty in Madrid as to whether the Portuguese will still be their player next season. And Real Madrid's doors are always open for Neymar . "The dressing-room all wants Cristiano to stay".

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".
