New Baby Alert: Model Maggie Rizer Welcomes Son Quinnlann Clancy

New Baby Alert: Model Maggie Rizer Welcomes Son Quinnlann Clancy
Fame/Flynet

It's been a good month for interesting baby names so far! Following the announcement of Holly Madison's daughter, Rainbow, and Lisa Ling's new addition, Jett, PEOPLE is reporting that model Maggie Rizer welcomed a new baby boy with the unique name Quinnlann Clancy, born on Friday. 

The little boy is already going by Quinn, though: “Quinn is absolutely perfect and our hearts are filled with love. We feel incredibly blessed to have been given another little angel. Our cup runneth over.”

This is the second child for Rizer with husband Alexander Mehran. Their first son, Zander, was born in 2011. While Zander was very traditionally named after his father (his full name is Alexander Rafahi Mehran III), their second son was given a new take on an already trendy name. 

Q-names in general are very popular with Quentin, Quincy and Quinn (and their numerous spelling variations) all in the top 1000. However, Quinn in particular is growing in popularity at No. 297 for boys, and especially for baby girls at No. 188. Quinnlann offers a new unique spin on the name - just as Zander was once a new spin on the old standby, Alexander.

What do you think of the name Quinnlann? How about Quinn and Zander as a sibset?

Well, Quinlan is a known surname so this doesn't seem "unique" quite as much as it feels like a name following three current trends: (1) Surname as given name, (2)respelling a name so that it literally contains the nickname you intend to use, and (3) working backwards from the nickname and deciding on a longer version.

Overall, it fits with current names, but in my opinion looks a bit awkward with the two pairs of "N"s. Because of the "ann" ending, I feel like I'm supposed to draw out the last vowel to make the end sound like Ann instead of an unstressed uhn.

This name is so hard to say. Try it 3 times fast:
Quinnlann Kwancy
Quinnlann Lancy
Quinnlann Kwlancy

No flow.

I want to pronounce it Quinn-lann, with lann rhyming with Ann. Why not just use Quinn? Unless Quinnlann is a family name?
