Jessica Simpson to Name Baby Daughter ...

by at . Comments

Choosing a baby name can be tricky. Especially if you're a celebrity.

The very pregnant Jessica Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson were, until recently, at an impasse about what to call their soon-to-be born daughter.

“They tossed around a lot of names, including some wacky ones like Zinfandel, but just couldn’t agree on anything,” a family friend confides.

What did they come up with?

“They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” the friend says. Maxwell is Eric’s middle name, and also his beloved grandma’s maiden name.

“Jessica wanted a name with meaning.”

Aww. Unusual as that is, it's quite sweet. If this is even true. Jess has been wearing a necklace with a diamond “M” pendant, so that could explain it.

The often nude, pregnant Jessica is now set to give birth on April 20, three weeks earlier than her original due date. “She’s gained so much weight and the baby is so huge that doctors had to push up the date,” reveals her friend to In Touch.

She doesn't let that thing get in the way of non-stop boning at least.

Maxwell is a sexy name for a women if she turns out to be a beautiful woman when she is older. I actually really like it Jessica must be a little risk taker, who thinks a little out of the box. Good choice Jess love the name for a girl!!!!!

would you whether she name her daughter Pear, Banana, Mango, Peaches or any other name for that matter? I think her naming her daughter Maxwell is not the big of a deal. when the girl gets older she can probably go by her middle name of Drew or by Mae. I have a friend named Max and she has never gotten made fun of (her actual name is Max Louyse (middle name is pronounced like Louise). If she has TRUE friends they will NEVER make fun of her name.

Maxi Pad. That's the only thing that came into my head - kids are cruel, not matter how he or she is raised.

If she likes it, I love it! I named my baby girl Johnnie after my Grandma! It never crossed my mind if it was a boy or girl name. Obviously it's a girls name because she has lady parts.
Now when she's older and she decides that Johnnie isn't the moniker that she wants, she can use her middle name Simone.
I look at like this, as much as some of you dislike Maxwell, that's the same way I feel about Juniors!! How unoriginal an uninspired can you be to name your child after someone else?! Family or not, it's not their name. Now you're Big Joe or Lil Joe and half the time people just call you Junior. There's nothing cool about not having your own identity and at least Maxwell is going to be her own.
