Hockey star Mark Knowles, and his wife Kelly, welcomed their first child on November 26. Their son is named Flynn William, and he weighed 2.86 kg (6 and a half pounds) when he was born. Mark’s sponsor has already sent baby Flynn a tiny hockey stick so he can start practicing.
Mark is a member of the national men’s hockey team, the Kookaburras, and says that the birth of his son ranks right up with winning a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
Flynn Knowles is the second celebrity baby called Flynn this year – the first one was Flynn Bloom.

Flynn is such a cute name that will end up being a girls name like Finley =(
That does seem likely.
Flynn — right there on the back of Finn. I’m eager to see if it has any effects on the Australian name stats for 2011.
I’d be very surprised if it doesn’t go further up the charts – or enter the Top 100 in states where that hasn’t happened yet.
