Halle Berry Names Son Maceo, Rate Her Choice

Over the weekend, Halle Berry gave birth to her second child, her first with new husband Olivier Martinez. Almost immediately, fans were informed the child was a) male and b) healthy, but much to the general publicís chagrin, no information was released about the little boyís name. A few days later, the family has finally let the secret out of the bag, and well, it was worth the wait.
According to TMZ, Halle and Olivier have named their son Maceo Robert Martinez. It means gift of God, and itís of Spanish origin. Neither of the parents has spoken publically about their choice, but considering Olivierís father is named Robert and is of Spanish origin, it seems pretty likely that itís one giant tribute to him, which is actually pretty adorable.
On the one hand, itís easy to see why Halle and Olivier would go with Maceo. Itís got a certain old world grace about it, but yet it doesnít feel so archaic that it canít be made modern. Itís original without being too bizarre, and itís very possible this kid will grow up and love his handle. On the other hand, however, Maceo almost seems like itís trying too hard. There are similar, more modern versions of the same name (Matteo/ Matthew), and no doubt people will have trouble pronouncing the choice for the rest of the boyís life.
