Baby name story: Julia Gillard

The mid-term elections may be over, but here’s one more election-related story for you.

Julia Gillard became Australia’s first female prime minister back on June 24, 2010. Minutes after the election results were announced, Papua New Guinea couple Singkau and Doreen Fuguto welcomed a baby girl. What did they name her? Julia Gillard.

Baby Julia Gillard wasn’t the first PNG baby to be named after an Australian prime minister, though. Back in 2008, then-prime minister Kevin Rudd paid a visit PNG. While he was there, Esau and Lina Kitgi welcomed a baby boy. They named him Kevin Rudd Junior.
