Barack means "blessed," and parents in Kenya hope that by giving their child the name, their children will be successful in life. (As an aside, President-elect Obama also has a beer named after him there, "Senator," and Obama: The Musical recently opened as well.) A family in Florida got a little more creative and gave their child the first name of Obama.
