I really like Sebastian. Dh hates it and doesn't want to consider it at all.

He is set on Max which I can warm to, however I'm not too sure about the longer version of it: Maximilian, Maxwell, Maximus, Maxton?confused
I really want Valentin as a middle name in memory of my late father whom I loved very much.
Sister is Alexandra.

What do you think?

Well I don't think you can have a name that your DH actively dislikes.

I's go for Maxim or Maximillian as longer forms for Max, probably the latter with Valentin as middle name as I think that flows better.

I prefer Maxwell. Maxim Valentin sounds a bit jerky.

Stonewash Sat 28-Jan-17 11:12:54

I like Maximus as full name for Max.

Other long-ish names for boys...

Nathaniel
Gabriel
Benedict
Jonathan
Orlando
Lawrence
Christopher
Benjamin
Theodore

I'm a bit sad because I think I'll have to drop Valentin as i feel it doesn't go with any Max variation at all

Why not just Max Valentin? That sounds uber cool.

I love Maxim and Maximilian as longer forms but agree they don't flow too well with Valentin. We're going for Valentin/Valentine as a middle name for DC2 if it's a boy in memory of a Valerie and we've chosen a super short first name to go with it, or it would be a bit of a mouthful IMO. Though as it's an important honour name for you maybe the sentiment trumps the flow of the name?

Maxwell is a great name and sounds fine with Valentin.

Pipilangstrumpf Sat 28-Jan-17 13:18:42

Why not Valentin as a first name?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 28-Jan-17 13:58:28

I agree with Nottalotta.

Max (as a standalone name) Valentin is great smile

Sophronia Sun 29-Jan-17 00:27:48

I like Max Valentin

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 29-Jan-17 00:32:35

Maxim Valentin sounds like a most excellent baddie.

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 29-Jan-17 00:35:23

Don't get hung up on how well the names sound together (although I think they work fine!). Valentin is an important name to you and it will 'go' with whatever name you choose because it's the name of your much loved dad.

I agree that Maxwell Valentin works well- it sounds film star-ish without being too out of the ordinary.

deste Sun 29-Jan-17 21:27:22

Maximus is very cool and Valentin as a middle name. Perfect.

Another vote for Maxwell Valentin

Soozikinzi Sun 29-Jan-17 21:38:54

Max Valentin from me as well x

BadToTheBone Sun 29-Jan-17 21:39:25

Max Valentin is great

Becklit Sun 29-Jan-17 22:01:53

I like Max Valentin alone smile Valentin is so unusual and special so a simple first name complements it well x

ferriswheel Sun 29-Jan-17 22:04:04

I agree with Motta. Or Valentin as a first name, I really like that.

CocoLoco87 Mon 30-Jan-17 01:48:22

Max Valentin
Maximillian Valentino

mathanxiety Mon 30-Jan-17 05:32:09

I like the sound of Maximilian Valentin, with Max as the everyday name.

(Really love Valentin).

Redpramlady Mon 30-Jan-17 14:19:38

Max Valentin
Strong name

Don't drop the middle name! It's lovely

minipie Mon 30-Jan-17 14:28:09

Max on its own is fine! Max Valentin is great.

Cosmicglitterpug Mon 30-Jan-17 14:34:08

Or put something between Maxwell and Valentin so it flows better?
