Jennifer Lopez Names Twins Max and Emme

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony named their newborn twins Max and Emme. J.Lo‘s manager Simon Fields officially confirmed the news to People.

On Feb. 22, the new parents welcomed their daughter first followed by their son.

This news was first reported by Star back in January when J.Lo‘s mother, Guadelupe, had bought ID bracelets for the as-yet-unborn tots, bearing the names Max and Emme from a jeweler in Yorktown Heights, NY.

It’s rumored that the twins’ full first names are Maximiano and Emelina.

  • beth

    Congrats!

  • Mara

    you’re wrong. the son name is Maximiliano

  • raye

    Their names are not that interesting, nothing special.

  • raye

    I think Marc anthony surname is nunez, so their names would be max nunez and emme nunez, or is it lopez after Jlo’s surname?

  • jackie

    I hope Max and Emme enjoy my adventures like there namesake on Dragan Tales. Congrats

  • lily

    The full name is better but if it was the shortened form as their real names blah.

    Emelina is pretty. Maximilian, well it’s quite old. but still the number 1 dog name in america.

    i just love the way nobody cares about jho’s or aguilera’s kids. lol celeb babies are so last year.

  • don’t like it

    I don’t like the names. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum sounds better.

  • me

    if it’s pronounced “maximiano” it would be spelled maximillano
    but it’s probably “maximiliano” (spanish version of maximillian)
    i like emelina

  • http://yahoo Yes

    I like emme not max. not my kids anyway

  • mia

    I didn’t know she gave birth to dogs….

  • interNATIONAL

  • silent_tears

    another max?
    well i like the names (even if many kids are called max) but i like the full names more
    Emelina is sweet but i think it’s not Maximiano… i think it would be Maximilliano ;)
    thanks for the news JJ

  • kate

    Love the name Emme

  • IYONE

    Max and Emme, Emme and Max. HAH! Like the Nick Jr. rabbits almost. But the girl rabbit’s mane is spelled “Emmy”. It’s still cute though.

  • KeysMama

    Liz, #17, LOL!!! That is exactly what I thought too. Wow she named her kids after the kids in Dragon Tales on PBS!! how quaint.

  • Alexa

    Cute names !!!

  • sweet kisses

    I like the full names better than the shortened versions so I hope the rumor is true. Emelina is beautiful.

  • casey

    both of them are ugly
    good bless their children

    what you mean with “Those are the whitest names i’v ever heard”?

  • marco antonio

    I can’t believe how many xenophobic comments are in this article. You are totally wrong with the spanish names: It`s Guadalupe (the name of the Virgin Mary in Mexico) and Maximiliano, please use Google before write stupidities.

  • KVB

    Cute names and nicknames….

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Maximilliano and Emelina could not be more Spanish. So you are wrong. Max and Emme are nicknames for the kids. And Latinos have the right to name their kids whatever they want just like Gwyneth Paltrow. And actually, these two are very much loved in the Latino community.

    Congrats to them! BTW, Marc Anthony’s last name is Muniz – not Nunez.

  • don’t give a fuckita

    Who gives a rat’s arse what this drag queen named the kids? I hope she’s not planning on whoring them out to the media like Tom and his robot.

    Also Max and Emme are the names of the two brother and sister Hispanic characters on PBS’ kid show “Dragon Tales”.

  • sorry

    I disagree Team Lara Croft…

    Marc Anthony is sort of liked I mean he won an award for Premio Lo Nuestro…But JLo?

    The Latino community don’t like enerally like her…I don’t mean to poke a fight but Latinos could care less about her…

    I’m mad though because I wanted to name my son Max and now I can’t because she took it… grr!

  • .

    Sophia your an idiot. Btw if any spanish people don’t like her because she named her children “white names” (which they aren’t) then they belong in the trash; as do you.

  • legs

    maybe j.lo’s mom wanted the whole latino name because the names of marc’s kids to her ex wife were english names (christian and ryan). i don’t have anything against j.lo but i think marc’s ex wife is more prettier.

    here is what my Latino friends tell me – they have in JLo a Puerto Rican woman from the Bronx who went from Fly Girl dancer to a megastart worth millions. She is the biggest Latina star and certainly the richest in America. She is a mogul. They are proud of that. It says Latinas can do that. Her movies bomb but yet as a businesswoman, her weight is unprecedented in the Latino community and that makes Latinos very happy. How can you measure how much people like or dislike her? The bottom line is she is a symbol of what Latinas can do in a predominantly white industry. She has won many awards and has given to many Latino charities. That is enough for Latinos. Both she and Marc give back and are symbols of Latino success and love. Bottom line.

  • LuckyL

    No one gives a ****. She is not even discussed in the tabs this week. She still looks like ****.

  • alexxx

    At least she went with normal names unlike some celebrities that give their kids weird names.

  • diablocody

    pEOPLE shouldn’t make fun of STAR. They get a lot of things right like this. I believe Bradgelina is having twins like they said, by in vitro because Angie was too skinny to get preggo naturally.

  • hotbitch

    I agree that the names sound ‘white’. Yes, the full names are Latin but ‘Max’ and ‘Emme’ sound like little white kids. There’s nothing wrong with saying that, though. I personally can’t stand the name Max. It just sounds stupid and generic as hell. Emme is okay. And this is just a pet peeve of mine but it bugs the shit out of me when people give their kids a name only to shorten it or call them something else. Just name them what you’re going to call them in the first place, Max and Emme. But at the end of the day, those are her kids and she’s given them the names she wants. I bet they’re beautiful babies. Marc may look cracked-out but his other 3 kids are cute.

  • Jellybean

    I1m Brazilian,so I’m latina.I really like JLo.She’s not my favourite singer,but I have nothing agaist her.If she wants to give her kids those names,than let her!What if a white girl wants to name her daughter Marley?Is someone going to say that this is a “black” name?Names are names,doesn’t matter where’d you come from.

  • falling tears

    I really like the Max name. my uncles name was Max. He’s dead now..

  • monika

    #8 – If you think Max is numer 1 dog name, what about Lily? I know many dogs named like you!!! By the way I think Maximiliano is great, strong name for a boy: very good choice. I like Emme (Emelina) too :-)
