Baby Obama Born In South Florida

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (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.
