Our top name for our baby boy is Max. My husband and I both like the nickname, but can’t agree on what his full name should be. I like Maxwell, he likes Maximus. What is your favorite full name for Max?

Anything but Maximus. Maximus reminds me of a dogs name.

I like Maxwell, but there’s also Maximo/Massimo, Maxon, and Maddox.

I liked the name Charlie, but didn’t like Charles. We ended up just naming our son Charlie. Some people poo poo naming with a nickname, but a lot of those same people then go and name their kid some stupid crap with a bunch of random letters to be Yuneek. Do you girl!
On topic, I like Maximilian.

I’d just do Max and keep it easy for him. Maximus also sounds like a dog name to me

I voted Maxwell but what about Maxon? Maximus makes me think of the muscle gluteus maximus, lol.

I adore the name Max! I would like to name a son that. If we end up having two boys, the second boy will be Maddox (we have a different boy name that is #1). My wife loves the name Maddox and I love Max so we thought the nickname Max would work with Maddox as the full name. My suggestion would be Maddox although I am clearly biased. Out of your options, I suggest Maxwell.

I think Max is fine on its own. Especially if that is what you intend to call him anyway.
In second place I say Maxwell if you insist on having a longer first name.

I wouldn’t name a baby a “nickname”, I prefer longer names that have a nickname so they can choose when they’re older- but that’s just me. So I definitely wouldn’t use just Max.
Max is on our list too, but it would be short for Maxime. We want a name that can be used in English and in French.
