NAME FINDER

Max

ORIGIN: French
POPULARITY: 206
Who could forget Max, the main character of Maurice Sendak’s classic picturebook "Where the Wild Things Are"? Max is the short form of Maxwell, Maximus, Maximo and Maximilian that has also worked as an independent given name in its own right. Like Sam, Jake and Joe, this baby name gets straight to the point and longs to blend in much more than it wants to stand out. Christina Aguilera and Charlie Sheen are among the celebrity parents who took this less-is-more approach to baby naming.
