Barack Obama's November election kicked off a naming frenzy with newborns in Kenya and the United States.
The day after Obama's inauguration was no different. Three newborns in Kenya have already been named after the president and first lady....meanwhile, Antigua is renaming its highest mountin--Boggie Peak--after the new president.
