Seattle Baby Girl Named 12th Mann

Kelly and Troy Mann of Washington are big Seattle Seahawks fans. They’re such big fans, in fact, that they decided to name their baby girl, born earlier this week, Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann.

The “12th man” in football refers to the fans in the stadium during a game. Seattle’s 12th man currently holds the world record for crowd noise at an athletic event.

The Manns said they chose their daughter’s name while watching the NFC Championship game (Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers) a couple of weeks ago.

Their two older children, ages 10 and 6, are jealous of Cydnee’s Seahawks–themed middle name, says Kelly. “Now they want 12th as their middle name too.”

Vegas Quints All Get D-Names

Last month, Deon and Evonne Derrico of Las Vegas welcomed quintuplets.

Each of their four older children has a D-name, so they kept with tradition and gave the quints D-names as well:

  • Deniko (boy)
  • Dariz (boy)
  • Deonee (girl)
  • Daician (girl)
  • Daiten (girl)

Other name patterns we’ve seen with quints so far are alphabetical names (Anna, Brody, Ciara, David, Ella) and first letters that spell a word (Gabrielle, Riley, Addison, Cooper, Emerson). We’ve also seen two sets of quints without name patterns: the Jones quints (Will, David, Marcie, Seth, Grace) and the Bieber quints (Kate, Samuel, Troy, Auden, Shiloh).

And now some fun questions for you: If you had to name a set of quintuplets, and all the names had to start with the same letter, which letter would you choose? Why? And, what names would you choose? (Let’s say there are 2 boys and 3 girls, just like the Derrico quints.)
