I don’t know what I think about it. This is the first time that I see this name. I think it’s a little strange.

@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.

@just saying, come on give it a rest at least for once.. Hate on another day. Be happy for the baby, he’s rich.

@Shelbethegreat shut up her first child father did the same and prince of England stay by his wife side also big deal.

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

Tonya31701 @ 10/07/2013 at 5:17 pm

@just saying, you can’t be that stupid in real life. If you just don’t have anything to do, I suggest you read your bible

MAKE ME SICK @ 10/07/2013 at 5:17 pm

@ pika Halle is the one that said Nahla is black and that she believed in the one drop so leave the person alone Halle is the one that said it.

Shelbethegreat @ 10/07/2013 at 5:21 pm

@Tonya31701 Oh, @just saying really can be that stupid, trust me. She’s mean, mean, mean, little baby come in the world and she has nothing good to say.

just saying @ 10/07/2013 at 5:26 pm

@Tonya31701 you so didn’t called me stupid in real life you needed to check your fact you fool and go read your bible. Halle called her daughter black with Gabriel so if you so want’s to get in to this fight let get down .

huggybear @ 10/07/2013 at 5:34 pm

All you people needed to stop fighting over Halle she not worth it god bless that poor family their going to needed it

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

@Love The Shoes: You’re the one with the ugly heart attacking an innocent Lion King fan

@Tonya31701:

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” …..it’s pretty cool and original.. in a good way! Yeah I love it actually… I might copy it someday haha

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.

The name is EUROPEAN IN ORIGIN PERIOD.

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
