"I always associate this name with the character in the novel/movie Rebecca (Rebecca's husband, who murdered her). Not the most pleasant association. Also, there are SO many little boys nowadays named Max, Maxim, Maximilian, etc. Still, it's a nice name, and I guess you could do worse. Just know he might have to use his last initial in school to differentiate him from the others!" Dec. 10, 2009:
