(AP) 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. EST at Hollywood's Memorial Regional Hospital to Patrick and Sasha Hall Fisher.
A hospital spokeswoman says it was the father's idea. But mom still got to watch the election, after 14 hours at the hospital.
Sanjae has two siblings, 8-year-old sister Shaniah and 4-year-old brother Shane.
