Jessica Simpson's Baby Name Is All Kinds of Wrong

Finally! Did it seem like Jessica Simpson had been pregnant for the past decade? Well, she gave birth this morning to a 9-pound, 13-ounce baby girl. After a short run of old-fashioned baby names like Pearl, given to the newborn daughter of Jake Osbourne, and Gloria, given to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgard's daughter, Jessica went with something a little more unusual. Well, unusual for a girl, that is.

Are you ready for Jessica Simpson's baby girl's name? Check it out ...

Jessica went with Maxwell Drew. Tah-dah! Kind of a boy's name, right? Drew comes from Jessica's maternal grandmother's maiden name. No word yet on what exactly inspired Maxwell, but Jessica, who had revealed previously that this would most likely be her baby's name, has said she wanted the name to be "meaningful." Plus, she's a huge fan of Maxwell House coffee. Kidding!

I like the idea of giving babies gender-neutral names. And I even like some traditional boys' names for girls -- like Bailey or even Drew, the baby's middle name. But I don't know about Maxwell. It's just too boyish for me, personally.

Jessica and her fiance, Eric Johnson, aren't the first celebs to give their baby girl a traditional boy's name though. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen have a baby girl named Sam (not short for Samantha). Can't say I'm a big fan of that either.

I'm guessing people will end up calling little Maxwell by the diminutive Max, in which case she could say her name was Maxine, if she liked. But, of course, being the daughter of Jessica Simpson, everyone will know she's lying! Maybe she'll go by Maxi. Or Welly?

What do you think of the name Maxwell Drew for a girl?

Not your kid, so don't worry about it.

I think it's cute and as long as the proud mama likes it then what we think is irrelevant.

It's different but that's what makes it special. Glad she named the baby what she wanted and didn't takethe public into consideration

Holy crap its about time. I heard she was going with that name over a month ago., not really news. Its her mans middle name and his grandmothers maiden name.

I had read that they will call her Maxi. It's sweet she's named after each if their grandmother's maiden names.

Considering one of the other bloggers on this site already did this article PRAISING the name AND telling us where each name came from you should know that her significant other's family had a long line of Maxwell's as a middle name. And that they are calling her Maxi. Congratulations on the double post though.
