The name of Halle Berry and husband Olivier Martinez’s baby has been revealed just a few days after his birth. The famous couple haven’t confirmed the name but a friend of Martinez’s wrote it on her blog.
Berry and Martinez chose Maceo-Robert, and it does hold some significance. The Maceo honors Martinez’s father’s Spanish roots and Robert was his father’s name, who was a boxer. The name Maceo also means "gift of God."
According to TMZ, who first reported the name, the name Maceo was popular in the 9th to 14th Centuries. The more modernized version of the name would be Matteo or Matthew.
Recently, a source close to the couple told People they “decided on a name that's great in both the U.S. and France.”
Berry gave birth to baby Maceo on Saturday, Oct. 5 in Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
Martinez said in June, “I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there, but I’m still a foreigner. My son will be an American.”
Berry has a 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
