I thought before that maybe the name is made up and they picked the name Obama so it's simple and sounds very similar to 'mama' or 'papa' so it helps the population see the government as their authority and parents.

I remember reading that part of the reason google became so popular is because even as adults many of us are attracted to simplistic baby like language, makes it easier for it to become a 'household' word.
