Washington - A supporter of Republican presidential candidate John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin went beyond a bumper sticker and named his new born daughter after the duo.

The child's name, Sarah McCain Palin Ciptak, however was a surprise to her mother.

The parents had agreed to name the girl Ava Grace, but father Mark Ciptak instead filled out the birth certificate with the political name to draw attention to the candidates, he told local newspaper the Kingsport Times News.

He only later told his wife, Layla.

"To be sure, she was not quite fond of me or of what I had done, but we've had some time to talk it over, and she has been really supportive through it all," Ciptak told the newspaper.

The name has drawn a slew of media attention, and the couple said they have not decided whether to keep the name or have it changed to their original choice.
