The recent election of Barack Obama is apparently influencing new baby names:
Hollywood, Fla. — Barack Obama may have a “funny name,” as he once said — but it might just catch on among the nation’s newborns.And in the spirit of following the example of their Messiah-Elect, "Barack '?' Obama", they are insisting to family members not to EVER mention Sanjae's middle name.
A Florida couple became among the country’s first to bestow it on their child, even before most news outlets had declared the Illinois senator the president-elect.
Sanjae Obama Fisher was born at 8 p.m. at Hollywood’s Memorial Regional Hospital to Patrick and Sasha Hall Fisher.
The iht says:
There have been other presidential naming trends in the past century, according to Social Security Administration data. Franklin jumped to No. 33 in 1933, up from No. 147 in 1931. Dwight surged in the 1950s and Lyndon in the 1960s. Theodore hit its peak in the first decade of the 20th century.Unlike years past though, it may take awhile for this trend to gather steam (what with Obama's "pro-infanticide" tendencies). Babies actually making it out alive to see their first birthday will become rarer and rarer. But occasionally, just like a few salmon are successfull in sneaking past the anglers and the bears feeding in the stream, some babies will actually still be born. These lucky few will need names.
"Honoring new presidents with baby namesakes used to be an American tradition," said Laura Wattenberg, author of "The Baby Name Wizard."
The most popular baby names from the previous two Democrat presidents of "Lewinsky", "Impeachment", and "Malaise" will certainly be replaced now with The One's election. I predict it won't be long before these names start to appear:
Marxist Smith, but people call him "Marxie".
Infanticide Johnson, "Infanty" for short.
Spreadthewealthius Bartholomew II.
ACORN Fraud Brown.
Other popular first names:SenatorGovernment, PresidentGovernment, Arrogant, Elitist, Lier, Billofgoods, Disillusioned, Misery, Nowwe'vedoneit, Destitute, Surrender, Retreat, Inflationary, Unemployed, impecunious, penurious, and Tohellinahandbasket.
