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 ;)

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

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.

Not surprised by Cosette, given the movie just came out a few months ago.  I'd expect to see some Eponines before too long, too.  ;)

Back to the name I posted yesterday, Baleigh. I read that as Bali, like the Indonesian island.

What's so bad with Cosette?  Aside from it being one of the main characters of Les Miz, it's been a name for a long time, just rather under-used.

She'll probably grow up to be some bourgeois two a penny thing
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz
