I love this name and always wanted to name a son this, but WAY too many people are using it now. I personally know of 6 Max's all under the age of 5!

James Patterson has a series of books under the name Maximum Ride whereby the main character is called Max (and her full name is obviously Maximum Ride). I find Max a fun, sporty name for girls if you don't like the girly name of Maxine.
Luangi  4/12/2007
I do not particularily care for this name. I do not think it looks good and Maximillian is way too weird. Also, everyone I know named Max is too smart for their own good and wherever I hear this name it reminds me of a nerd.

This name is so 1930's. Ha.

I too think the name Max sounds like a dog.
jasmineenimsaj  1/14/2008
I like the name Max. I think it's nice for a girl (short for Maxine) or a boy. It's simple sounding, but yet nice sounding. The name was used long before it became a name for a dog. And the name is making a comeback in England, Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and Australia. The name is on their top 100 names for boys. I believe it will make a comeback in the US as well.

NovaNight  6/23/2008
I don't exactly hate this name, but I am VERY sick of hearing it. I can't even count how many celebrities have used it on their sons, whether as a full name or a nickname. Can't they be a TINY bit more original? It's just empty after becoming overused in Hollywood.

Max is a great name, it's short, strong and sweet! It also means 'the greatest', you can't get better than that! My wee boy's called Max, he's 5 now, I'm not surprised it's got more popular now even with the celebs! Lol!
kel 1  1/30/2009
I think it's a pity this name has become so associated with dogs! It's a great name for a guy; cute for a little boy, yet still strong for when he grows up!

My name is Max and I've gotten a lot of crap over the years for it. IE Maxipad, Maxine. I still like it though because it's not relatively common in my area and when I meet another Max it's like an instant rapport.

Max has been one of my favorite male names for many years, and it annoys me that it's now so overused and trendy, particularly among the yuppie set. Now it just seems rather devoid of creativity because little Maxes are everywhere. Full versions of the name, like Maxwell, Maxim, and Maximillian are also rather common, just so the parents can call the kid Max.

Max was Kid's rival in the cartoon Kid Paddle. She played video games against him at City Game Arcade.
Zepton  10/12/2009
I really love this name. My younger brother (who is now 11) is called Max and it suits him perfectly.

I think it may be becoming a little bit too common now, but it is still one of my favourite names.
scarlet-cullen  11/15/2009
I personally don't see the appeal for this as a full name- on a girl OR boy, but especially on a girl, it sounds silly and ugly. However, Max is an okay nickname.

It's a cool name on its own, though I'd prefer to see it as a nickname for Maximilian or Maxwell.
Athena Nike  4/4/2010
I like this name. It can be good for a girl name too. But I mostly like it for a boy. Maxxie! would be a cute nickname.

I like it! I also like Max Schreck the actor who played "Nosferatu" the vampire. He's charming and handsome, when he's not dressed up, and I like him so much I would marry him, if he were alive, HaHa! Vampires are so charming, if you're goth.

This is such a badass name, on it's own or as a nickname for Maxwell or Maximillian, it just disappoints me that such a manly name is being used on girls, parents: if you name your girl Max than you should be shot.

My name is "Maximo" and everybody calls me Max... a lot of people tell me it is an awesome name.
DMax7XeL  8/4/2012
I like this name. It's short, sweet, and ages well. I had a classmate in middle school named Max and I always thought it was short for Maxwell or Maximillian but his name was just Max. I could imagine this name on a nerdy, handsome, business man for some reason.
Poco  10/23/2012
I think of the name Max as a tall, strong, protective man. Sometimes not the brightest of the bunch. When he has a girlfriend he'll most likely be protective and very supportive.

I love the name Max. I am having my #3 baby in a few months and I have a daughter Lucy and a son Charlie and we are having another boy and his name will definitely be Max. It's such a handsome name but fits a little boy too. I know everyone says it's getting popular but I don't care. I love the name and would hate to let such an awesome name not be my sons name just because other people are named it and also everyone says it's a dog name, which I agree, but so are my other kids names. I think people should stop naming their dogs people names anyway. what ever happened to Poochie, Sparky, Snoopy etc those are dog names. anyway I think Max is a fabulous name and can't wait to meet my Max:)

Max sounds feminine to me. I would never consider it masculine unless it is a nickname.

It's too nicknamey for my taste, even though it is used as an independent name. Not a fan.

If I have a boy I want to name him Max.
Many baby names are used on animals rather then animal names, silly. Max has made a comeback anyway and is on the top 100 list for many English countries. I love it!
