Celebrity Baby Names: Jessica Simpson’s Son

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

When Jessica Simpson had her daughter last year, her baby name choice raised a lot eyebrows—Maxwell Drew didn’t exactly say girl to most people. But do you think her new son’s name redeems her? She and fiance Eric Johnson picked Ace Knute for their baby, born earlier today.

The name they chose for their son is just about as interesting as their daughter’s name. Ace means one, and is on a huge upswing since the start of the century (it’s just about to crack the top 500). The most famous bearer of the name is KISS guitarist Ace Frehley, but a few celebs besides Jessica Simpson chose it for their sons as well.

Middle name Knute was chosen in homage to Johnson’s grandfather—it’s a Norse name that means knot, and its most famous namesake is Knute Rockne, the top Notre Dame football coach.

It’s a cute, but very short-and-sweet name—and one with a soft edge, thanks to the soft C in Ace and the n sound of Knute.

Are you a big fan of Jessica Simpson’s new son’s name—or do you think she went a little too offbeat yet again?
