Local newborn named Obama

LANCASTER, SC (WBTV) - Just hours before Barack Obama took the oath of office, a baby bearing his name was born in Lancaster, South Carolina.

Nikkie Moore named her son Joshua Obama Blackmon, but says people are already starting to call him by his middle name.  She hopes as "Joshua Obama" grows older he can learn a couple of lessons from President Obama's example.

"Learn some things, you know, make it better for him and whatever he wants to do."

"Baby Obama" weighs six pounds-eleven ounces. He's one of four kids, but none of his siblings are named after presidents.
