Obama Baby Boom

Yes. You guessed it. There has been a surge of newborn baby name registrations in Africa beginning with B and O. Barack and Obama are the flavour of the month right now.

There is something endearing, something that makes one smile, about this.  As a highly qualified psychologist told me recently, Africans tend to be more emotionally literate than Westerners.  What better way to display all your hopes for the future than to name your child after someone who stands for Change.

I find it gratifying.
