    Help me out homies
    Maximus is either cool, or way over the top, depending on who hears it.
    Avery is a fairly popular girl's name in my area.
    Edward is pretty traditional, OK but not super exciting in my opinion.
    Liam will make him feel comfortable in a crowd as it is ridiculously popular.
    Duncan is kind of cool.

    Now take into account the whole name, and what trouble that might cause. Let's say for example your last name is Stevens. If you were to go with Avery, then Scott as a middle name, your kid would always be an ASS. Seriously, you can't over-think this thing enough.

    My last name is Greene. My first name is Ryan. I have lived in apartments where the previous tenant was also Ryan Greene. It really sucks having an utterly common name. So when it came to naming our kids, I insisted on slightly unusual first names. But on the flip side of the coin, if your last name is Zribowkowlski or something else exotic, maybe something a little more bland might be a better option.

    Whatever you choose, once you and the wife make a firm decision, I recommend not telling anyone of your choice. We've known people who had the names stolen for other children in the family, and who have been harassed for their choices. Everyone's got an opinion, and they won't all agree. So **** them until it's legal and on paper.

    My dad told me he went to school with a boy named Percy. By high school, he said, no one messed with Percy because with that name he'd been in more fights than anyone else and learned to take care of himself.

    Should I name my baby boy Maximus?

    One of my former co-workers named his kid Maximus. I never really asked why. He wasn't a fighter or anything. Personally, I would say not to.

    Historical names are fine by me, or even cool potentially. With the exception of things that are popular because of blockbuster movies. That usually makes it pretty douchey in my eyes.

    For example, all the MMA fighters who can't even spell Thermopylae who quote 300. They probably wouldn't be so enthralled if they knew how much Ancient Greek society encouraged homosexuality.

    A lot of it would have to do with the last name.

    Maximus Reed, or Maximus Shields would work, Maximus Baxter or Maximus Brown less so.

    I have a feeling the results of naming a baby boy Maximus would be about the equivalent of naming a baby girl Chastity. I have no experience with boys named Maximus, but girls named Chastity appear to fail to live up to their names about 99% of the time.

    Congrats BM :)

    Maximus would be a strong middle name but is a little heavy for a person to carry as a name (will make a good fight name if he turns out to be a badass).

    Not to be a downer but I can see kids at school picking on him as it rhymes with anus/Uranus - not even kidding here, I have to say something when I notice a fail name for a generation.

    Have you and your wife thought of anymore?

    Here are a few more to add to the list you will likely ignore :)
    Bran
    Ajax (Jack or Jax for nicknames)
    Wyatt

    I wanted Ghengis for our dog, but "we" settled on Ginger Muffin.

    I met a guy in NH named Sauron (not sure on his spelling). Gee thanks mom n' dad.

    How about Magnus? Not quite as over the top as Maximus, and a fairly common first name in Sweden. We named our son Magnus (the name is rare, but not unheard of here in Germany), and so far we haven't had any problems.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)
