HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Barack Obama may have a "funny name," as he once said — but it might just catch on among the nation's newborns.
A Florida couple became among the country's first to bestow it on their child, even before most had declared the Illinois senator the president-elect.
Sanjae Obama Fisher was born at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at Hollywood's Memorial Regional Hospital to Patrick and Sasha Hall Fisher.
A hospital spokeswoman said it was the father's idea.
Sanjae has two siblings, 8-year-old sister Shaniah and 4-year-old brother Shane.
