A "Catholic" with "Muslim" names?

Reader comment on item: Obama's Mansion, Saddam's Money
in response to reader comment: The names chosen for Obama's children

If Obama converted to Catholicism about 20 years ago; then one has to wonder why he's named his children Muslim names.

Obama is not a Catholic. He was baptized at the Trinity United Church of Christ, affiliated with the United Church of Christ, in Chicago in 1988.

His Children's names are Malia Ann and Natasha, neither of which are "Muslim" names. A cursory search on Google would have told you this. Try doing some research next time...
