The name is a shorter form of Maximus, after St. Maximus the Confessor, an Eastern Roman (or "Byzantine") theologian, diplomat and scholar born in Constantinopolis (now Istanbul) in 6th century. French and most of southern and eastern Europeans use Maxim(e) as the name form. Orthodox church celebrates St. Maximus on January 21 (Julian calendar) and Catholic on August 13 (Gregorian calendar).

I love this. The only things that turn me off are the association with Maxim magazine and the fact that I have no Russian heritage whatsoever... Would it be strange for someone not of Russian heritage to use it?

This name reminds me of the word "Maxim", that is a principle or proverb. That makes me think that someone with this name might be very smart or wise.

I want to second what the above poster said - this is also an English name, pronounced "MAKS-im", short for Maximilian.
