  1. It’s a beautiful name

  2. I chose max because i wanted a name that started with the letter M and wasn’t that long something simple and short

  3. We both liked the name we chose it because it doesn’t run in the family

  4. We wanted something short, easy to say, easy to spell, and not too trendy or popular.

  5. Max loves his name! He sees it everywhere and finds that fun. We chose the name because it’s short and sweet like our names. It means “the greatest” and that was a perfect fit for our boy. Oh, and mean nicknames? Kids don’t even know what maxie pads are anymore. Lol
