I predict a rise in popularity of this name in the USA.
Barak sounds like barák meaning house in Czech.
Hebrew pronunciation is bah-RAHK (just like Barack Obama.)
In Israel Barak is used both as first and family name. And there are so many of them, that sometimes I do not know whom my interlocutor means.
I love this name. In David Edding's Belgariad and Mallorean books there are a man called Barak with red hair and is very big. In Leon Uris book Exodus there are a man with red hair and he is called Barak too.
The Hebrew pronunciation is bah-rahk.
Barak Obama is an Illinois senator.
I believe Barack Obama's name is related to the biblical name BARUCH, meaning "blessed" not BARAK.
It's Barack Obama.
