I saw that and thought maybe there was a mistake. I guess not though. To each their own, I suppose. I hope mom and baby are both doing well.
Ew. That is a very masculine name from such a girlie mom.

I'm not fond of names that will get a kid made fun of for life. Maybe they'll call her Drew (which is still kind of masculine, but a little more androgynous than Maxwell)?

Awwww, how nice. (I think it's kind of a cute name.)

I think it's kind of cute! She could go by Max or Drew - both of which I think are cute nicknames for girls!

Bout' time! It seems like she's been pregnant forever!

I imagine she could be called Maxie for short. I don't see it being any different than other names that were once thought to be masculine.

Max is an awesome nickname for a girl.

Geez, finally. I thought the woman was going to explode or something.

I'm interested how quickly she's going to lose all that baby weight. I remember her saying she gained 50+lbs during the pregnancy.

I think it's a nice name!

Why do we even bother having masculine and feminine names?

I wonder how many folks would think it was cute and nice if she'd had a boy and named him Jennifer.

I think that names that are masculine work for both (for me anyways) yet feminine names do not. I am not sure why that is.

Well, I don't like the name Jennifer for a girl or boy.

Nicole Ritchie named her son Sparrow which I think is nice. And I wanted to name my second son Lyric which is more of a girl's name.

I know plenty of male Ashleys, Jamies, Kellys, Danas, Shannons, Aubreys, Brookes, and Leslies. I know a male Aria and a male Kim. Some of these were originally boys' names, but they are now associated with girls.

I know a woman named Lloyd. That is definitely not a name that crosses over well!

I like the name Drew for girls. Maxwell not so much. As another poster stated, I think it's interesting that she has such a girlie girl personality and chose such a masculine name for her daughter.

Maybe they'll call her Max, or Maxine, or Wellie, or Drew, or MD Johnson.

eta: perhaps she is conducting a brilliant social experiment that will put her daughter ahead of the game. Her masculine name will get her places that a feminine name won't. Imagine calling for Maxwell Johnson, and hearing a woman's voice on the other end. It's a great conversation point.
I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

Jennifer to me has that family name/used to be male sound when I think about it, but Jessica definitely would've caused an uproar if she'd named a baby boy that. Xcptnl, it's because anything coded female is automatically assumed to be inferior. Therefore, a boy saddled with a girl name is to be derided and/or pitied. It's like how people freaked out over some mom painting her son's toenails. *gasp* Girls do that, now he's tainted!!

I also like the nickname Max for a girl.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I love boys' names for girls, I think Max is cute. It's not like it's some inane attention-seeking celeb name like Kal El, Audio Science or Inspektor Pilot, I doubt she's going to get made fun of much surrounded by celeb kids with names like that.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
