As the last drops from Jessica Simpson’s amniotic fluid geyser continues to sprinkle on L.A., some people are wondering (not really) why she and that Eric Johnson dude came up with the name Maxwell Drew for a girl. They didn’t name their 10 pounds of baby after Maxwell Caulfield and Drew Barrymore, or Maxwell House and Dr. Drew, or Maxwell Sheffield and Drew Lachey. “Maxwell Drew” elegantly rolls off the tongue like a Chicken McNugget half chewed up by Jessica, but they have a good reason for why they gave their daughter that name. It’s a family names!
Rumor Fix says that Maxwell is Eric’s middle name and his mom’s before marriage name. Drew is Jessica’s mother’s before marriage name. Rumor Fix also says that the name Maxwell means “great stream” and the name Drew means “manly.” Put those names together and you’ve got a real urinal cake breaker! That name meaning shit doesn’t mean anything anyway. My first name means “who is like God” and my middle name means “Jehovah increases.” Some shit got lost in translation somewhere, because that should really be “who is like Trash” and “Bitterness increases.”
Well, now you know the meaning of Maxwell Drew, so you can sleep through the night without waking up to spit at Jessica and Eric for achieving new levels of dumb by coming up with that baby name.
The whole “using your mom’s maiden name as your kid’s first name” thing is not some shit most people can do, right? I like my mom’s maiden name (Note: I will get a tree branch slap to the mouth from my abuelita if I don’t type that), but if I named my kid that, it would have a permanent side-eye and it would learn how to flip me off real quick.
