“Children born 9 months from now should be referred to as ‘children of the quarn’”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic led to quarantines, and many people speculated that there would be a baby boom nine months later. “Children of the Quarn”—a pun on the American supernatural folk horror film Children of the Corn (1984)—was a popular term.

“Children Of The Quarn” was posted on Twitter by Liam Larkin on June 22, 2011. “Children Of The Quarn” was posted on Twitter by David Biehn (and others) on March 13, 2020.

“I just saw on FB that the children born 9 months from now will be know as the ‘children of the quarn’ and I can’t stop giggling” was posted on Twitter by ¡Yuh! on March 26, 2020. “Children born 9 months from now should be referred to as ‘children of the quarn’” was posted on Twitter by Kourtney KPisces on March 31, 2020.

So, have we arrived at a consensus name for the generation of babies born nine months from now?
