Henry ranks in at #43 last year on the US list, while Max is #105. But you also have to take into consideration other "Max" names that may be using the nickname. Also, it will all depend on which region/state you live in, and when you plan on having children. If you want to research name population by state, the SSA has that information on their website.
Around my area (southeast), I tend to hear a lot more Henrys, although Maxwell is becoming more and more popular.

Number of Henrys born in 2012: 8006
Number of Maxes born in 2012: 3663
But keep in mind there are many other Max names out there. Maxwell, Maximus, Maximiliano, and Maximilian are all in the top 500. Any boy with one of those names could be going by Max. When you add the numbers for those four names to the number of Maxes, you'll surpass Henry's number easily. I don't hear either name very often (if at all) in my area, but I would recommend checking out the stats for your state if you're concerned about popularity.
