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.


Maxi, smaxi.... Geez as if there aren't enough challenges being a child of a celebrity. I don't get it... Think about your child and their feelings of the teasing they may receive.


With wings or without? Regular super or overnight? Ridiculous.


I think it's cute! My grandaughter's name is Kenny and she's beautiful. I want my daughter to name her lil girl Stevie. After a family member. Just because you don't like the name Maxwell, all that matters is that they do. It has special meaning for them. Hey, I've heard worse....Apple, Moon Unit, this is 2012 people ...I say go for it Jessica...she will be gorgeous!


I love you Jessica, but Maxwell i a boy's name. Im sure there's other cute girls name that have a meaning to you . You have such a beautiful name, why dont you let your daughter have one too. I mean im not saying axweel is ugly, it's really beautiful but not suited for a girl.I wish you the best!!!

Poor kid is gonna go thru hell in school with that name.


I thought the same as the other poster, Maxwell as in Maxwell Smart or Maxi - Pad short for Maxi. People in Hollyweird d not think!. Just like BLue for Beyonce's baby and all the ridicuous names out there. Kids ca be cruel and they will not even think that she and Eric named the kid after his middle name or her grandmother or whoever. Not too Smart, as in Maxwell......


Now, Ms Billie...........That's REALLY a GIRLS name!




Real chic- Really??? Bullying? Congrats to you for saying the dumbest thing I heard all day. You need to hop off the media "bully" train and think for yourself. It's a name, and just like any other name, not everyone's go to like it. The baby will grow into her name. They always do.


Zinfandel??? Thank god they decided against that. Is sooo low budget. Maxwell is a man's name but Maxi is cute imo.

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
