Max is #32 on the UK charts for boys names, so I don't think the full version of it is really all that weird (which is #200). It means "the greatest" so maybe they have big plans for kiddo ;)

Bad names--I used to collect them just for the ... 'you gotta be kidding me' factor.  Of course, now that I work w/ hospital medical records, I see a *lot* of names that make me want to say to the parents "what were you smoking?"

But these are names from my lists of 'bad baby names' culled from newspaper birth announcements:
Shy’Mani J’Ana Shaprieka
Zyonaha Amari-Uynque (not only is she unique, but we can’t spell it)

For some reason, the girls always seemed to get the far more weird names.

Another one that made my list, not because the names were bad on their own, was because these are just *HORRIBLE* names to give to twins: Emma Elizabeth & Emily Rose (let's sentence them to a lifetime of hearing "oh, here come the M&Ms")   To be honest, I think both names are pretty, but just not for siblings, and especially not twins.

I see Buh-Lay.  Which leads to lots of obnoxious rock-climbing jokes.

Before they married DS2 made DIL promise that their daughter would be named Roma. Not bad, it actually goes with the last name.

If they had twin sons...yes, you guessed it, Romulus and Remus.  Fortunately twins don't run in the family.

Actually Maximus is latin for "Big".    I think they got it from a local football player who is always talking about "A Maximus Festivus" when we win a big game.
And Max can also be short for Maxwell or Maximillion.

Funny that name was brought up - I had dinner last night with a 4 year old and his name is Max, when I asked if it was short for something; I expected Maxwell or Maximillion - nope it was short for Maximus :D

Newest member of my family -- Maximus middlename lastname.

As long as the middle name isn't Prime... Yeah, I know my Transformers stuff.

A 20-something(?) barista at Starbucks had a nametag that said "Maximillion".  I asked if that was his real name and he said yes, he goes by Max, but a coworker had made his nametag.  I told him I liked it and he said he had never met another Maximillion, but usually Maxwell.

March's baby names from my local hospital:

Cosette
Zura
Otillie
Aaradhya
Trinitie
Aubriannah
McCoy
Aditi
Macaigen
Jaybin
Berklie
Aften

Ryder is once again the most popular boy name here.  There were some lovely gems like Eleanor and Elias, I'd say only about 25% of them made me roll my eyes.
