The first name of Obama is Barack. I read somewhere in one of the articles on Obama that name is drawn from Jewish name Baruch. Be peractical a muslim would never look for a Jewish name to name his child. Having lived among muslims all my life in India, Pakistan and Middleeast B ARAK stands for MUBARAK and his second name is HUSEIN. OBAMA appears to be an African tribal name. His nationality at the time of his birth as well as his correct name could be found on his original birth certificate in the hospital he was born
