about the name MAX

Just plain Max? It reminds me of a dog...I'm not a fan. But I also have a dog Bailey so I wouldn't be a fan of that name either(for a baby). :D

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

I agree 100% Maxwell, Maximillian, or Maximus would be much better options.

I like it. I think it's a great nn, but I like it on its own too. I love Maximilian though.

Ive never liked to longer names for Max...but I always thought it was cute. Maxwell is okay but Ive never liked Maximillian or Maximus. I dont think I would name a kid Max just because Ive have a thing against one syllable first names but I would use it as a nn if I liked any of the longer names.

If you like it go with it.

Max is great by itself... the longer versions are awful!
