Will Your Baby's Name Be Influenced by the New President?

Will Your Baby's Name Be Influenced by the New President?

If you've got a bun in the oven or plan to give birth during the Obama administration, would you consider naming your child Barack or Obama after the Commander-in-Chief? Or Michelle, Malia, Natasha or Sasha after the first lady and the president's daughters?

No! I am a huge fan of Obama, and have always thought Sasha was beautiful name. Still I liked the Clintons,but would never name my child Bill or Hilary. Baby names are more personal.

That picture is priceless--I hope the family got a copy. It's not everyday that a president holds your son!

The name Natasha was on my list, but I'll probably cross it out if that is her real name.

No matter how much I like a President, their name will not affect my children's names!

I like Malia as name but not because it's the daughter of Obama. People that name their children after Obama now are not being smart, they don't know how he will be as a President. He could end up a huge disappointment.
