    Sibling name

    We currently have a son named Max (not short for Maximilian or Maxwell, just Max). We're trying to think of a name for another boy and I came across the name Wells and loved it! My husband seemed to like it too but then realized that if we were calling them it may sound like the name Maxwell... I still adore the name, but can see his point. Do you think this should be a deal breaker?

    Do you hate the name Maxwell? If not, then I don't see a problem.

    I think it's fine.

    Some people may think you're saying Maxwell, but if you like it, then you should use it. I like Max and Wells as a sibling set.
