Last name origin & meaning:

German and Dutch: from a short form of the personal name Maximilian (Latin Maximillianus, a derivative of Maximillus, diminutive of Maximus ‘greatest’), borne by a 3rd-century saint venerated particularly in the region of Passau, where he founded a church. The personal name was comparatively rare at the most productive period of surname formation; it gained popularity from the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I (born 1459), who was named by his father, Frederick III of Austria, in honor of the Roman heroes Q. Fabius Maximus and Scipio Aemilianus, as if with a combination of their names. The name is also borne by Ashkenazic Jews, presumably as an adoption of the German surname.

Famous people who gave their babies this name: Nick Hornby, Charlie Sheen, Steven Spielberg, Henry Winkler, Christina Aguilera, Cynthia Nixon
