A reputed family friend of Jessica Simpson's told In Touch magazine the mommy-to-be and fiance Eric Johnson are planning to name their baby girl Maxwell and call her Maxi, for short.

Maxwell is Johnson's middle name, according to E! News, and the source told In Touch "Jessica wanted a name with meaning."

Simpson recently posed nude on the cover of Elle magazine and said inside the issue the couple decided on a "nontraditional" baby name. She added the name would be "nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary."

Maxwell seems to fit the description, so we'll see if Simpson confirms the name. She did not respond to an E! News request for comment.
