She's already been chosen by hip musician Nick Hexum for his daughter, sister to Echo. Maxine was a Top 100 name from 1915 to 1930, attached to such celebs at the time as actress Maxine Elliott and one of the singing Andrews Sisters, and now to Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Chinese-born writer Maxine Hong Kingston.
