article imageIn Kenya, a mother names newborn twins 'Barack' and 'Mitt'

By Can Tran     Nov 8, 2012 in World
Election Day 2012 has proven to be an interesting and significant day to be born. This applies to both the United States and abroad.
United States Election Day 2012, on November 6, is quite the day to end up being born. This applies to both home and abroad. In the case of the United States, there was the case in Chicago during the morning time. Upon arriving at the New Life Celebration Church, which was being used as a polling area, Galicia Malone went into labor with her first child. Instead of going to the hospital when her water broke, Malone refused to leave until she had cast her vote. While being a first-time mother, Malone was also a first-time voter participating in the United States Presidential Election between Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and GOP nominee; the former, Barack Obama, won re-election as US President.
It's unknown what name Malone gave her child.
There was as similar case in Kenya, where Obama has family heritage in. In Kenya, Millicent Owuor had given birth to twin boys on Wednesday morning. When you think about international timezones, when it's the end of Election Night in the United States, it should already be morning time in Kenya. In the case Owuor, she named her newborn twin boys “Barack” and “Mitt.” The significance behind naming the sons that way is because Owour wanted to remember that night. By naming her sons in that fashion, Owour will be able to remember and look back at what took place in the United States.
An article piece on MSN Now humorously asks which one ends up being the “evil twin” out of the two.
Naming her two sons “Barack” and “Mitt” is one creative way of keeping the two of them united for the rest of their lives.
