Obamamania may have seized Kenya over the weekend, but for some, the frenzy will now be life-long. A batch of Kenyan newborn babies have been named in honour of the US President, his wife and even his presidential jet, AirForceOne.

According to Lucy Akinyi Okoth, one of the new mothers who spoke to reporters:

"I have decided to call my baby AirForceOne Barack Obama so that we can all remember Obama's visit to Kenya because it is a huge blessing,"




Another, Lucy Atieno, decided to simply call her boy AirForce One.

"I have been told that it is the best aeroplane because it carries a very powerful leader of America who is also a Kenyan," she said.




The two Air Force Ones were among eight children born on Friday night at Kisumu Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Referral Hospital and named after Obama, said nurse Dolphin Akinyi.

"Yesterday from 8.30 pm we had eight deliveries and all the babies are in a very stable condition," she said.

Three girls also each got an Obama-related name. One was named Michelle after the first lady, another was called Malia, after the couple's eldest daughter, while a third was named Malia Sasha after the two Obama girls.

"I could not call my daughter any other name," said Wilkister Anyango, who took both Obama's daughters' names for her child.

So far there are no reports of children being named after Obama's armoured limousine, popularly known as "The Beast".
