"We're not seeing crazy names like Pilot Inspektor or Moxie Crimefighter anymore," says Moss. "I think celebrities are becoming a little more sensitive to the fact that the child has to live with his or her name." Moss said that the general public does not respond well to noun names like Lion or Apple, or worse: an adjective and a noun like Blue Ivy (Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter). Many fans wrote that Ivy Blue would have been a better choice. "There was also a minor backlash to the two baby girls named Maxwell this year," stated Moss. Songstress Jessica Simpson and husband Eric Johnson named their daughter Maxwell Drew while actress Lindsay Sloane and agent hubby Dar Rollins named their daughter Maxwell Lue. "It's not unusual for male names to cross over onto the female list, but you'll rarely see it go the other way."
