    @just saying: Have you never heard about Maceo Parker, (ultra mega) famous jazzman (who happens to be BLACK american…)

    @LA2222 The meaning of the name Maceo is ‘a gift from God’. The name has a Spanish origin, the origin of the name Maceo is Spanish

    @ LA2222 the point am making Is Halle made it her business to give Nahla a part of her culture which is afro American.

    @just saying: the child is more european than african so she is probably gonna give it more of a european name. halle berry is mixed race and her kids are only a quarter black, it just so happens that they took more of her complexion and features because it appears to be more dominant in this case.

    Maceo is a beautiful name, for a beautiful boy. Congratulations Halle and Olivier, can’t what to see the baby. I read in people that Oliver never left his wifes side as she brought there son into the world. He is a good man and father. This family is fantastic.

    Why is it that people (mostly us black people) always trying to stir up an argument regarding something so stupid as a name being of African origin. WTF does this have to do with anythiing. Clearly, the babies dad is Spanish you idiot and the mom is MIXED (not just black!). She can name the baby after a bacteria….it’s her f’ing baby..get over it. Geez morons

    @Kasia: Why would your heart feel the need to be that ugly? Is it because no one can see you online?

    Nice one Tonya, what a great observation!
    Why get race in the middle of everything?
    I’m of mixed race, African with white European, and my name reflects BOTH my parents choice as catholic, nothing more, and yet it does not make my mother or myself less proud of our black origins!

    Live and let live indeed.

    I oddly like the name “Maceo” …’s pretty cool and original.. in a good way! Yeah I love it actually… I might copy it someday haha

    Hector Says:

    TONYA is a dumb lying TROLL and she is not BLACK she is an ugly ghetto PuertoRican. Stay out of it it has nothing to do with you this baby is not PuertoRican his father is French, his culture is French and Olivier is French. The baby has an ancient Spanish name so what you fool.

    Courtney Says:

    Olivier is part Spanish hence why they chose Maceo as their sons first name and his middle name is after his paternal grandfather which it’s pretty standard to carry on a family name with a child. Nell Newman for example is named after her two grandmothers Eleanor is her maternal grandmothers name while Theresa is her paternal grandmothers name. it’s none of the public’s business what celebrities name their children
