My kids have Irish names. That doesn't make them Catholic or Anglican or Irish (except by ancestry). Abraham Lincoln wasn't Jewish either. Lots of Americans have names for lots of reasons. Barak didn't choose his name. His parents did. He was raised and is an American protestant christian. If his parents had named him Zen, would that make him a Buddist?
