I believe that being slightly unique in baby name choosing is a good thing. I always wished my own name was a bit more exotic, and hated always feeling so ‘common.’
And while my own set of twins’ names you don’t hear every day, they are still in the range of normalcy, and don’t take people back when they hear them.
I’m writing this post because I’m truly disappointed in the name of Jessica Simpson’s very recent, new addition. I have, much like Mariah Carey, loved her music since the days of I Wanna Love You Forever. So, I was very excited to hear what she was going to name her beautiful baby girl.
I was hoping that somehow the sonograms were wrong when I first heard the name, because it was certainly not one you would hear for a girl, but for a boy. Not ‘pretty’ or ‘feminine’ in the very least. Here it is if you haven’t already heard….Maxwell Drew.
Her own sister Ashlee gave a pretty strange name to her son, but at least it was a boy. Bronx Mowgli. Not a fan, but if Brooklyn is now becoming a popular girl’s name than whatever then. Cover the whole Tri-State area . But a VERY boy name for a girl? ICK!
So, were the love birds hoping hard for a boy here, or do they just love their coffee a whole lot? I mean Maxwell is fine for a boy, but for a little princess? I can’t fathom it fitting her throughout her life.. AT ALL!
I think it was some kind of family tribute or something, but why not Maxine at least? Give the name a girlie spin to it. This was only a first child, why not wait for the boy to come along in the future, which is very possible?
I don’t know how you feel, but I was very disappointed. I mean thanks to Drew Barrymore, Which is usually a boy’s name as well, it’s now ‘acceptable’. Drew Maxwell would have been a better choice if they just had to have that Maxwell in there. What do you think?
I still remember hearing Mariah Carey’s twins’ names. Monroe and worse still..Moroccan! And what about Beyonce? Sure the baby is beautiful, but naming a baby after a color, and one that also means feeling sad and depressed is kind of BLAH, no?
I mean Ivy is alright, why not Ivy Blue? I first thought it definitely was a mistake and it was in fact Ivy Blue until sources confirmed it definitely was Blue Ivy. A let down.
From Apple to Pilot Inspecktor…WHY do celebrities think that because they are on the red carpet and have fans around the globe this entitles them to choose very odd and sometimes just downright weird and ugly baby names? The kids are still human beings that need to survive in this world like the rest of us have to.
They have to live with their names for the rest of their lives like anybody else, regardless of social/economic class. Why should money and fame change something like Emma, Caroline, Joseph, Brianna, and Andrew into something unfitting for a dog much less a human being?
Is there a battle in Hollywood to see who can go weirder?
