I love the meaning of this name and although to me it sounds unattractive as a whole, I like the shortened version Mayn.

I really like the meaning and sound of this name. If we named our son Maynard, I would call him Maddie for short. My mother and brother hate it though. Is it a good idea to name your baby something your family hates!?

From Desperate Housewives, Susan and Mike's son is named Maynard. There's a wonderful episode dedicated to the selection of this name. Though they usually refer to the kiddo as "M.J."

(Walter) Maynard Ferguson was a jazz trumpet player. He played with the Stan Kenton orchestra before starting his own band in the late 50s.

No. It just makes me think of the band Tool, and it sounds pretentious anyway.

Maynard G. Krebs, TV's first beatnik character, was one of the main characters on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and he was played by Bob Denver.

A truly atrocious name. It sounds like what some illiterate hillbilly would name the kid she had with her cousin. The fact that it belongs to the singer of the band Tool makes it even worse.
