Back in 2006 when Peter and I first got married and had our whole lives perfectly planned out, we decided we would name a baby boy Maximilian and a baby girl Samantha. Perfect names for our future babies!
Unfortunately, both of those names (especially Max) became too popular in the past five years, so I’ve taken both of them off the table.
Peter is still pulling for Max, and only refers to the baby as Max, but I hate the idea of a trendy name. We could have pulled it off four years ago, but now it would just be crazy to use the name Max. Right?
We have four friends with children named Max, all under the age of four. Charlie Sheen, Gilbert Gottfried, Christina Aguilera, J-Lo, Lance Armstrong, and Jessica Simpson all have young children named Max. The name has risen in popularity every year since 1995.
What do you think? Max should definitely be off the table, right? Suggestions, please!
