I think this is the perfect name for a boy - regal, like most Latin names, yet still applicable for today. If I have a son, this will certainly be his name!

A lot of people on here really like this name and I honestly can't see what's so great about it.

I prefer Maxwell which is easy to say and spell. The nickname Max is great.

Saint Maximilian Kolbe. He volunteered to die in the place of someone else at a Nazi concentration camp so the other man could stay with his family. They tried to starve him and the others with him to death, and he had them singing songs the whole time. Everbody with him eventually starved to death, but Maximilian wouldn't die. Extremely angry and frustrated with this, the Nazis eventually killed him with lethal injection.

This name sounds so snobbish and pretentious. It also sounds like "makes a million". It shows the parents want their son to make it big (in a selfish way, not a good one). What kind of message are you sending to your son?

The Norwegian pronunciation (with "English" words for the Englishmen) is Maxi-MI-li-an (mi as in "me", li as in "lee").

Hey, it's not that bad.

Extremely pretentious and over the top, and in most cases nowadays, only used so the parents can get the trendy nickname Max. If you're only ever going to call the kid Max, unless this is a family name, just name him Max and skip the pretense of giving him a long-winded name like this.

In Daphne du Marier's novel Rebecca, Laurence Olivier's character's name is George Fortescue Maximilian de Winter, but he's called Maxim.

I've always liked this name. When I was little I thought it was a nickname that meant something like "Max is worth a million." I really like it though.
Liesl  10/22/2010
A popular name amongst the German aristocracy, and the name of several of the Holy Roman Emperors.

It's a name which says quite clearly, "I'm better than you and always will be".

You have to love it.

I think it also should be a female name, like Pat, or Kim, or Chris... I think the name Maximiliana would be very cute for a baby girl. Maybe Maxis for short?
angolmois  10/6/2013
Oh my God, I love this name! It's great for a boy! The meaning and history of it is fascinating and brilliant! =D.

I hate my middle name. Gaylord was bad enough as a first name, but then to add Maximilian to it? In primary school I was nicknamed GayFag the Maxi-Pad. I hate this name.
MaxGSchatz  7/9/2014
We love the name Maximilian. It is our youngest's name. Our family is German and Catholic so the name was right for us.
Maximiliana is a proper name as well. Think of General Hospital's Maxi.

Maximilian Veers from the movie Star Wars is a bearer of this name.
cutenose  1/6/2016
The Netherlands is using this name?! NO WAY... They got to be using Maximiliaan since it is the Dutch form of Maximilian! I do not believe Maximilian is common in the Netherlands. Because usually Dutch uses 2 a's not just one just like example the Dutch name Daan.

This was my great-great grandfather's name. I used to dislike any "Max" name, but this is starting to grow on me.
