The name "Max" is one that we love in our family. First it was my grandfather's name, who came to our country as a young boy, worked his way up into a well known chemical company and obtained several patents for the company (Working for our gov't at that time) during WW 1, and contributed much beyond that. During the depression he gave work to a community of men who had been laid off and was generous. Although he already had degrees he was awarded another. Also, Max was my husband's oldest Uncle's name who also was an immigrant from Europe, and accomplished much during his lifetime. He had a beautiful voice and sang the 7 blessings at weddings, and was known for his voice, since his father was a chazzan, he knew so many beautiful melodies. Most important, both men were mensches, honorable men.

I love the name Max. I am having my #3 baby in a few months and I have a daughter Lucy and a son Charlie and we are having another boy and his name will definitely be Max. It's such a handsome name but fits a little boy too. I know everyone says it's getting popular but I don't care. I love the name and would hate to let such an awesome name not be my sons name just because other people are named it and also everyone says it's a dog name, which I agree, but so are my other kids names.
