Reader comment on item: Obama's Mansion, Saddam's Money
in response to reader comment: Is Malia a Muslim name?

Submitted by I have a arab name but I am not arab. (United States), Nov 8, 2008 at 15:28

This is the most absurd thing I have heard and I have heard some pretty absurd things since Obama announced his run for the presidency. There are people in this country of various ethnicities (non-muslim) who are named Natasha and Malia. Natasha, if I am correct, is actually favored amoung the Russians. It is a Russian name.
