    i know a number of max’s, why can’t his name just be max?  if you are going to call him max, why do you need to make it longer?

    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.
