Max

If you think your baby is just “the greatest,” then Max is the name for him. While Max fell out of vogue at the turn of the century, it’s slowly, but surely, making a comeback judging from all of the celebrity babies with the moniker. And Max sounds much more approachable than it’s intimidating older brothers, Maximum and Maximillian. Interesting fact: there have been several Nobel Prize winners named Max. Coincidence? We think not.
