  1. Its a strong less common male name that is two syllables and paired well with brother Henry. Additionally we love the nickname Max. It means great stream.

  2. The spelling is actually Maxxwell! I chose that name because it was perfect for him and I wanted to call him Maxx!

  3. It took us nearly 48 hours to name our son, Maxwell Jacob! We wanted his initials to be MJ… so we went through tons of “M” names and “J” names… ultimately, we narrowed it down to Maxwell… but when we couldn’t decide on the middle name, we let our daughter choose between our 3 favorite “J” names! I love his name! We call him “Maxie” and “Maxie Baxie”!

  4. My daughter named him after Maxwell House coffee

  5. Loved the strong name and the nickname is short and easy for his big brother to say.

  6. I love the name Maxwell. It’s strong but also has a great nickname -Max. We call our son Max 99% of the time.
