Quaranteenager (quarantine + teenager)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in quarantines and popularized some quarantine portmanteau words. A “quaranteen” (quarantine + teen) or “quaranteenager” (quarantine + teenager) or “quarantween” (quarantine + tween) is that individual under a quarantine, or that individual who is the result of a baby boom during a quarantine.

“Quaran-Teens” was printed in the Boston (MA) Daily Globe on August 17, 1955. “QuaranTEEN’d - Every sh!tty highschool horror movie ever” was posted on YouTube on May 9, 2016.

“Quaranteenagers” was printed in The Sunday Telegraph (London, UK) on June 5, 1994. “Quaranteenager” was posted in the newsgroup alt.silly.little.newsgroups on December 12, 1998. “Hussle Club - Quaranteenagers [OFFICIAL VIDEO] (Scion AV)” was posted on YouTube on October 22, 2011. “Quaranteenagers: Strategies for Parenting in Close Quarters: Adolescence” by Lisa Damour was printed in the New York (NY) Times (online) on March 19, 2020.

“Quarantween” was printed in LAist on October 11, 2008. “When they get to their pre-teen years we can call them the quarantweens” was posted on Twitter by Juliet Wallace on March 13, 2020.

“Can’t wait for 2033 when we start calling Rona Babies the Quaranteens” was posted on Twitter by Dex Hinton on March 12, 2020. “Mattafact, any baby born in 2020 will be known as a ‘Quaranteen’ in 2033” on Twitter by “Trunk you need to contain this shit” later on March 12, 2020. “Prediction: There will be a minor baby boom in 9 months, and then one day in 2033, we shall witness the rise of THE QUARANTEENS” was posted on Facebook by Taylor Burton later on March 12, 2020.

“Coronial” (someone conceived during the time of the coronavirus) and “Children of the quarn” are similar terms.

Similar “quarantine” portmanteau words include “quaranadult” (quarantine + adult), “quaranchild” (quarantine + child) and “quaranchildren” (quarantine + children).

Quaran-Teens
DENVER, Aug. 17 (AP)—It 20 errant youngsters had any hop of a quick release from Denver’s Juvenile Hall, they can forget it.

...the rest of us to dismiss these people as “obsolescents” or “quaranteenagers”...

Video of the Day: Quarantween
BY ZACH BEHRENS IN ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT ON OCTOBER 11, 2008 12:00 AM
Quarantine is the Los Angeles based movie that opens today and it looks scary and stuff like that. Quarantween, the Los Angeles based movie by Disney looks even scarier.
