Sasha Obama’s real name has freaked out the internet
After eight years and two terms, much of the internet is now just catching wind of a surprising fact about former first daughter Sasha Obama.
The bombshell: “Sasha” isn’t her legal first name, but rather her nickname. Her real first name is Natasha.
Writer Ashley Ford prompted an internet freakout on Sunday when she shared this bit of trivia on Twitter:
Today is the one year anniversary of me finding out Sasha Obama’s actual first name is Natasha.

This fun fact came to light last summer. As the New York Daily News reports, the former first daughter went by her real name while working at her restaurant job in Martha’s Vineyard.
Now, a year later, much of the internet’s still just finding out.
WHAT’S MALIA’S NAME? CHELSEA???
