Margaux nn Max?

I love Max, especially with the alliteration of our M last name, but not really a fan of long-form options like [name_f]Maxine[/name_f] or [name_f]Maxima[/name_f] which aren’t really our style.

Do you think that [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] could work with the nickname, [name_u]Max[/name_u]? Or would you just use [name_u]Max[/name_u] on its own?

For reference, other names on the top of our list include [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f], [name_u]Lou[/name_u], and [name_u]Romy[/name_u] so there is definitely a subtle [name_u]French[/name_u] influence a la [name_f]Nicole[/name_f].

Thanks,

This seems like a perfect nickname!

I think it works :slight_smile:

With this spelling I feel like it could work, but I’d probably expect [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] to be spelled [name_f]Margot[/name_f], in which case [name_u]Max[/name_u] would be a little out-of-left-field. Written down it makes more sense, though.

You could definitely use [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] nn [name_u]Max[/name_u]! I love [name_u]Max[/name_u] on its own, too.

Works great.

Marguax nn [name_u]Max[/name_u] is cool! I like it.

Matilda ‘[name_u]Max[/name_u]’ came to mind but i think [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] is more your style

I like it but I don’t think [name_f]Margot[/name_f] nn [name_u]Max[/name_u] would work well. Much prefer [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] nn [name_u]Max[/name_u] as you said

What a great idea! I also don’t like the long forms of [name_u]Max[/name_u], and have just [name_u]Max[/name_u] on my list, but I think [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] nn [name_u]Max[/name_u] is perfect!!

I’ve never thought of this, but it’s really fun! I do like [name_f]Massima[/name_f] though spelled this way too.

As a lover of [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] and [name_u]Max[/name_u] (for both genders), I LOVE this idea. I’m usually funny about nicknames that aren’t intuitive but I think this actually works… [name_f]Margaux[/name_f] is my top pick if we were to have a second daughter so I’m going to keep this in mind!
