Some Such Name
  The Viktor-Yulia Mob
There is an article under review at the Wikipedia called New Couples Emerge Out Of Ukranian Crisis. It says that:

KEIV-An unexpected consequence of the thousands of people from diverse areas of Ukraine congregating for the massive protest currently underway in Kiev has been the union of couples that otherwise would not have met.

According to local priests and doctors giving support to the masses camping on the streets, there has been a rise in marriages between young people that have met during the demonstrations, and an increase in the requests for pregnancy tests, up from virtually zero in the first days to 10-15 a day.

The babies born in 9 month's time will, according to tradition, be named in honour of those leading the protests: Viktor —if it's a boy— in honour of Viktor Yushchenko, the opposition leader, and Julia, in honour of Yushchenko's stong supporter and opposition Parliament deputy, Yulia Timoshenko.

Here is a history of the protests following the election. This just confirms my theory that political revolution is just another way of going about reproduction, with added benefits like a democratic regime.
