Mireille Enos of 'The Killing' gives her son a unique name: Larkin Zouey. Find out what it could mean

It's a boy for Mireille Enos of "The Killing."

The 38-year-old actress and her husband, Alan Ruck, welcomed their second child on Wednesday, according to People, which first reported the news.

He was born in Los Angeles at 7:07 a.m. and clocked in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, the mag said.

Like his mom, the tiny tot has an unusual name: Enos and Ruck are calling their little man Larkin Zouey.

And to save you a Web search or two, we've looked up possible meanings for the moniker: Larkin is a common name of Irish and Gaelic origins. It means "rough" or "fierce" and is usually seen as a last name. Zouey is a city in the African nation of Cameroon. It could also be a derivative of the usually female name Zooey, if Google's "did you mean: Zooey" prompt is taken into account.

Whether those things have any meaning to little Larkin's parents is unclear.

The couple, who wed in 2008, said they were "awestruck" by their son's arrival and that "The whole thing is a miracle."

The proud parents had announced that they were expecting again in February. They're already parents to daughter Vesper Vivienne, 3, who had been excited to meet "MY baby," she said when the couple first broke the pregnancy news.

The "Big Love" alum has been nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe and will appear in Season 4 of the beleaguered crime drama when it lands on Netflix (after two series cancellations) on Aug. 1.

Ruck, 58, who appeared in the late-'90s sitcom "Spin City" and classic comedy "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," has two adult children from a previous marriage.
