Jessica Simpson Picked a Baby Name & She's Already Told Everyone What It Is

jessica simpsonSecond-time mom-to-be Jessica Simpson has already picked out a name for Maxwell Drew's sibling -- and I like it. Supposedly, this go-round, Jess and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a boy, and the name they've chosen is perfect for what I imagine will one day be a cute tow-headed toddler with an adorable bowl-cut. The name's original -- but not too out there. Cute -- but kind of "tough" at the same time. And, most importantly, no other kid in Hollywood has this name.

The name Jessica and Eric have reportedly chosen is:

Ace! Thoughts? I kind of like it. Then again, I'm a big fan of one-syllable names. Ace Johnson. Sounds like a race car driver.

Something I'm personally not a fan of, though, is revealing the baby's name whilst still pregnant. If other people want to give away what they're naming their babe before giving birth, by all means, tell away. Heck, I'm curious and would love to know! But I'd rather wait. To me, it makes baby's entrance into the world a little more of a surprise; but moreover, I just don't want people chiming in on the name (or attempting not to chime in, but making their thoughts obvious via expression). If others want to weigh in afterwards, whatever, the name's picked. What's done is done. But I certainly don't want to second guess a name I love while still pregnant.

So respect to Jessica for not caring what other people think. Hell, she's telling the whole world what her little one's name will be. (Or a source is.) And if anyone tries to make you think twice about the name you've picked, Jess, let me just tell you: I love it.

Did you tell your baby's name before giving birth?

We find out Friday if it's a boy or a girl.  We only have a girl name picked out...  but no matter what, no one will know our decision till baby arrives.

No..I dont like to because people always steal names..My dd's name is Maia and a lady at my husbands work stole my name...luckily I gave birth 3 weeks before she did..but she still used the damn name!

I could care less what she names her children. What I care about is she is now havng another baby and not married.  What is wrong with people today? This isn't an accidental pregnancy. She is living with the father of her children and they want to marry each other so why haven't they? It sends a bad message to women who don't have her means that you don't need a husband to have children when statistically women and their children have a much less chance of living in poverty if their parents are married to each other.

Yes, everyone knows these days that women are incapable of providing for themselves or their family, she should absolutely rush into getting married because of her unplanned pregnancy. I mean, look how well her first marriage worked out, and there was no pressure there?


Get a grip and join us in the 21st century.

The first one I had revealed the name before she was born to her namesake right before she died. Maxine was my great-grandmothers BFF and I named my daughter Hilda Maxine after Granny and her. People think it's an old name but I loved it!

yuck to both of her names! she should have saved the name she gave her daughter and used it for her son!

i trhink the notion of "stealing names" is ridiculous.
