This name is a bit too long for my tastes.

Maximilian have i seen someone use before, but the O on the end kind of makes it sound a little bit too dramatic for someone to actually call themselves. But again, that might just be the fact that I'm not from a country where this is an usual name. :3 It sounds quite cute.

As a fan of names like Christabella and Octavius, I have to say...this is much too long and over-the-top for me! :(
