Paz Vega Names Son Lenon

Paz Vega Names Son Lenon
Target/FAME Pictures

Spanglish actress Paz Vega and her husband, Orson Salazar, have named their newborn son Lenon. Their other children are Ava and Orson.

The choice of spelling for the new baby is unusual. Lennon has quietly moved onto the charts in the past two years, ranking #951 in 2009, but Lenon is not much used. A quick search of the Internets turns up NFL player Paris Lenon. Or perhaps the couple chose the spelling to make the name less an homage to John Lennon?

What's really gotten attention are the pictures of Vega and Salazar leaving the hospital with their newborn (seen here). Yes, she's wearing heels and a super-cute dress.  

What do you think of Lenon? What do you think of the sibset Orson, Ava and Lenon?

I think that's quite a sibset! Interesting that Ava is super popular and the boys' names are not - I would think the reverse is more common, because girl-name popularity is more diffuse.

Lenon made me think of Lenin a little too quickly for comfort - it's halfway between Lennon and Lenin, which is a fascinating balance.

I don't remember what country they are from but perhaps they don't use double "n" as commonly as we do. It really isn't necessary. I thought they also did it because Lenon and Orson would both be 5 letters and then end with "n". Perhaps that is the link they wanted with Orson Sr. Where Ava has the same number of letters as Paz and even thought it is popular is a lovely name.

Paz Vega and her family are from Spain, and in there is no "nn" in Spanish words.
