New Baby Alert: Jay DeMarcus Welcomes Son Dylan

New Baby Alert: Jay DeMarcus Welcomes Son Dylan
Fame/Flynet

Country music star Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and his wife Allison welcomed their second child, a boy named Dylan Jay, this weekend. Little Dylan joins sister Madeline Leigh. Mom and Dad have plenty of celeb company with their choice of the name Dylan, dads as diverse as Tommy Lee and Pierce Brosnan each have a son with that name.

First appearing on the charts in the 1960s, Dylan has steadily risen to great heights in the past few decades including a brief stint in the top 20 (2003-2004) and now sits at number 33. Though the DeMarcus family haven’t said anything about the inspiration behind the name, Dylan has become very popular on the heels of a few famous fellows. Depending on your age Dylan may seem like a rebellious high-schooler (the dreamy Dylan McKay), a folkie rocker (Bob Dylan of course), or a hard-drinking literary figure (Dylan Thomas).

Middle name Jay spent a bit of time in the top 100 but currently is number 401 among first names. Jay puts us in mind of other short middle names though in this case it's obviously in honor of dad Jay's nickname (Jay was born Stanley Wayne DeMarcus Jr.) just as sister Madeline shares her middle name Leigh with mom.

Is baby Dylan Ray more proof that the single syllable strong-A middle name trend continues--remember Gloria Ray Sarsgaard and Mable Ray Willis earlier this year--and has caught on with the boys? After last week's new born Mason Blaise Autenrieth, we think we may be on to something.

Is the short middle name a trend right now? How do you like the name Dylan Jay?
