Seahawks fans name daughter after '12th Man'

See also

A couple who is very big on football decided to name their newborn daughter in honor of their favorite team: The Seattle Seahawks. The little girl was named during the NFC championship -- and it seemed only fitting that she would be named after some aspect of the team... and that's exactly what her parents decided.

The newborn was named Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann. For those who don't know, "12th Man" is the term used to describe Seahawks fans who are at the stadium during football games. It is presumed that the family's last name is "Mann" so the middle name "12th" sort of works... sort of.

Ironically (and very fittingly), Cydnee was born 12 days after the NFC game -- and just in time for the Super Bowl! And you can bet she will be watching the game with her family this Sunday, that is, if she can stay awake.
