As many a schoolchild knows, the gluteus maximus is the butt.

In the Oscar-winning film 'Gladiator', Russell Crowe plays Maximus Decimus Meridius, a Roman general who is deposed by the emperor's jealous son Commodus and is forced to become a gladiator after the murder of his wife and son.

I love this name. It sounds strong and powerful. I prefer it as a middle name or with the nickname "Max".

This name looks extremely pompous. Also makes me think of a gluteus maximus.

I guess this name drastically shot in popularity after the film "Gladiator" was released. It's a Latin name, and sounds very pretentious and out of place in the 21st century. God knows what the appeal of these -ius names is. Cassius and Julius are alright, but I really dislike Maximus and Atticus.

Maximus is my cat's name I named him after Gladiator. Love the name Maximus.

This name is great if you want your son to become a gladiator or tour guide in Rome when he grows up. It sounds so pretentious.

My son's names are Maximus and Cassius but we call them Max and Cash. I love the names obviously and never heard a person say anything other than nice things about it and certainly not that it's pompous, at least not to my face.

Maximus is my son's name, we call him Max. It's not pretentious at all!

Maxwell and just Max are a million times better. Maximus is not only VERY pretentious but it will remind anyone of "gluteus maximus" which is a muscle located in one's actual butt.
