Not a good name. Makes me think I'm talking to a Major in the military. One who had this name was Maj. Major Major from Catch 22.

I'm a military nut, so I love this name.

Don't name your kid this, especially if your last name is Payne.

Major is my 2 year old's name. I chose it because it is a strong, gender specific name, which hopefully will never see the top 100 list. It fits him well.

I was under the impression that the first part was "maht" might, strength or perhaps "mol" meaning to sharpen.

I don't care if this is your maiden name, if you are in the military or whatever- I find this name ridiculous as a first name. If you have a reason to use it, use it as a middle.

I can already see the amount of jokes aimed towards a kid with this name.

Hyper-masculine names are becoming a necessity as people are assigning traditional boy names to girls. If you go with "Michael, James, Andy, etc," then chances are your little boy will wind up with a female classmate of the same name. Unfortunately, in that situation, the girl is not ridiculed for having a boy name. Instead the boy is laughed at for having a girl name. Trust me on this, as a "Tyler" growing up in the 80's, I was constantly called Mary Tyler Moore. As parents move away from the traditional boy names, the girl names will follow. All of the "Braxtons, Brodies, Bradys, etc" that dominate the male name landscape of today will soon become the female names of the future. If none of that bothers you then don't worry about naming around the trends. However, if you want a lock down name that will never cross over the gender line, then Major works great. I have a 2 year old named Anderson Major. We were set on calling him Anderson until about 2 weeks before his due date when we met a little girl named, you guessed it, Anderson. In hindsight, with his personality, he was born to be Major. I'm not sure how it would work out if you have quiet, shy, passive little boys, but for our little boy, Major is the only name that fits.
