Any thoughts on this?
I am liking it for a boy but not sure if the face Kerry Katona has a son called this makes it seem 'chav'?

Also, are there many of them about?

reminds me of rhubarbs (ex) parrot

I really like Max. Not many round here as surnames seem to be the in thing - Mason, Mitchell, Riley, Ryan, Taylor, Mackenzie - you get the idea grin.

I have heard it a lot but I don't like it, it sounds like a dogs name to me.

Two Maxes at DS's school.

Used to know a Max.
Quite a handful so wouldn't be first choice...
I think quite common too.

Not chav. But it's been done to death

What about Bruce? Gus? Rex? Guy? Saul? Greg? Ross? Lots of names have the same snappy one syllable feel but are much more unusual.

Fwiw, KK did well with her names, Heidi and Max. Could have been Billy-Rae and Lookey or something similar

I agree with maggievirgo. It's not 'chav' at all, but it's omnipresent.

I really like it.

I know a lady whose son is called Maximo which I think is lovely.

i have a Max. It's common, but less common than Jack, Harry, Oliver and 20 or 30 other names that no one seems to worry about being too common. ;)

we went with Maxwell as the longer form, as it works well with our surname, Kerry Katona be damned. (DH doesn't even know who she is.)

it's a classic name (Max, I mean) and you really can't go wrong with it, IMO.
