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. Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann © KING 5 News
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.”

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:
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.)
Births of quintuplets bless, humble Las Vegas family
One of my readers is expecting a baby boy in a matter of days and she’d like some last-minute name suggestions.
The baby will have one older sibling, a brother named Jett Royce. The surname sounds like Adlard.
Jett’s given names are both quite short, so I’m going to stick to the pattern and suggest…
Drew (or Andrew)
Tom (or Thomas)
Which of the above do you like best for Jett’s little brother? What other names would you suggest?
