Jessica Simpson gave birth to a baby boy Sunday and the baby's name is drawing criticism on Twitter (just like another celebrity couple's baby name choice from last week. Ahem, North West).

The 32-year-old singer and "Fashion Star" mentor gave birth via C-section to Ace Knute. The baby's middle name honors his father Eric Johnson's Swedish grandfather, reports

We took a peek at some tweets with the hashtag #AceKnute. Cue the sarcasm ...

Ace joins big sister Maxwell Drew, who turned 1 in May. Simpson has been engaged to Johnson, the father of her children, since 2010.
