After Maurice was born to Suzanne Valadon, she went to Renoir, for whom she had modeled nine months previously. Renoir looked at the baby and said "He can't be mine, the color is terrible!". Next she went to Degas, for whom she had also modeled. He said, "He can't be mine, the form is terrible!". At a cafe, Valadon saw an artist she knew named Miguel Utrillo, to whom she spilled her woes. The man told her to call the baby Utrillo: "I would be glad to put my name to the work of either Renoir or Degas!" (26 December 1883)
