More Americans are following the lead of President and Michelle Obama when it comes to naming their daughters, the Social Security Administration said Friday.
"Maliyah," a version of the name "Malia" that the president and first lady gave their oldest daughter, made the biggest jump in popularity among girls names in 2009, moving 342 spots up to No. 296.
The name "Malia" moved up 153 spots to No. 192.
Meanwhile, "Sasha," the name of the Obamas' younger daughter, came in at No. 261 - having moved up 101 spots.
There was no bounce for the first lady: The name "Michelle" actually dropped one spot to No. 104.(continued)

Your comment was pitch-perfect. Kudos!
I guess if you can’t decide whether you’re an Islamist or a Communist hedging bets with the kids’ names is one way to compensate.
Obama goes to bed every night laughing at these idiots.
Heaven forbid they use those electrons investigating Democrat’s complicity in the sub-prime mortgage disaster, financial crisis of 2008 or 2010 (pick one), the Blago scandal, Obama inviting terror attacks or Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons! No, let’s do a piece on how popular the Obama family is, even though they’re not!
Earlier tonight I named something “Barack” but now it’s floating with thousands of its own kind in a lagoon several miles from here.
Origin and Meaning of the Name Malia
Uncertain, maybe bitter

(mah LEE ah)
What about “Wookiee” ?
“Earlier tonight I named something Barack but now its floating with thousands of its own kind in a lagoon several miles from here.”
Good... Real good.
Leave the kids out of it.
My favorite is “Phunkreshia”. Top that!
It is err.. was.
“Leave the kids out of it.”
What? I didn’t mention the kids...
Honestly I threw up in my mouth a little bit.
I don’t think I could drag my sorry but to naming my kids after any first family members.
I named my last little girl Tesla. She will turn 1 this next week. I named her after Nicola Tesla. He was a great man and a greater American. He stood for “real” hope and really wanted the best for his fellow man. Not this communist crap. He was a capitalist but not a greedy bastard. We should rely on names that mean something to us. The first family doesn’t mean crap to me.
I think that Melia is the Hawaiian word for Mary. Maybe they just used a variant spelling.
Yeah, leave the kids out of it. They wont be full Communists for another four or five years when their indoctrination is complete. Then we can let them have it.
