SportsCenter anchor Lindsay Czarniak gave her new baby a sweet nickname
Congrats to news anchors Lindsay Czarniak and Craig Melvin, who are parents for a second time.
SportsCenter anchor Czarniak gave birth to daughter Sybil Ann Melvin on Nov. 5.
Sybil is a Greek name meaning "prophetess," namely a woman who claimed to be able to interpret the wishes of the gods through their oracles. It's a name that was hugely popular in the 1920s and 1930s, but not so much in recent years. However, it may be due for a revival thanks to the youngest Crawley daughter in the hit British TV show Downton Abbey.
Famous Sybils include American Revolutionary War heroine Sybil Ludington, Olympic swimmer Sybil Bauer, Irish fashion designer Sybil Connolly and American silent film actress Sybil Seely, while fictional Sybils feature in Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, the Harry Potter books, TV show The Worst Witch, and popular British sitcom Fawlty Towers.
However, it turns out that Czarniak and Melvin's inspiration for the name was something quite different, and the couple's 2-year-old son Delano (aka Del) played a major part in their choice. "Sibby" was the nickname Del used for his sibling while his mom was pregnant, and they all ended up "falling in love with the name."
A week before Sybil arrived, Czarniak showed off the finished nursery on Instagram — we're loving the cherry blossom tree.
