With all of the unique celebrity baby names out there-–Suri, Violet, Shiloh, Harlow, Apple, why did Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony choose Max and Emme? Pamela Redmond Satran, author of baby naming guides Cool Names and The Baby Name Bible, told Usmagazine.com:
“Max and Emme are cute but, as starbaby choices go, highly unoriginal. Christina Aguilera just used Max, which hasn’t been truly cool since the eighties,” Satran explains. “And Emme is an amalgam of Emily and Emma, the top two names in the country, which means that she’ll be in the same position [Jennifer] was always in, being one of several kids her age with the same name. It’s refreshing when celebrities choose the kind of regular names that the rest of us choose and don’t reach so hard to come up with a Romeo or a Moxie Crimefighter.”
Sticking with so called, “regular names” is a nice refresher from what we’re used to. Props to Lopez and Anthony for possibly starting a new trend in Hollywood!
