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.
