All’s well that ends well, right? Stylish and oh, so continental, Maxwell is tailored, polite, and polished. Consider it an easier, less turbo-charged way to get to Max than Maximus, Maximo, or Maximilian. It’s never hit the top 100 baby boy’s names, but it doesn’t really want to as Maxwell is trendy, but not over the top. For parents who find it a little too manicured, you can always copy what Jessica Simpson did by picking not one, but two traditionally male names for her daughter, Maxwell Drew, in 2012.
