Jessica Simpson jumped on this gender-bending trend when she named her daughter Maxwell Drew. She explained that the name is from her fiance’s middle name (Maxwell) and her mother’s maiden name (Drew).
Other celebrities give their child a masculine first name paired with a feminine middle name, such as Michelle Branch who named her daughter Owen Isabelle or Rachel Uchitel who named her daughter Wyatt Lilly.
Other stars, such as Soleil Moon Frye, went masculine all the way by naming her daughter Jagger Joseph Blue.
“Jagger was a name that we loved from the beginning of the pregnancy. We always wanted to be surprised by the sex and we felt like it was perfect for a boy or a girl,” Frye told People. “Joseph has a meaning that is so very close to our hearts. It was the name of our godfather... Blue, we just loved it.”
“We have always believed in the names within our family having a deeper purpose and for us, Jagger Joseph Blue was certainly one that came from the bottom of our hearts. She is beautiful, happy and healthy, which is what is most important, and the name makes us smile each and every day,” she said.
