Completely torn between names
At the moment me and the hubby are completely torn between Max and Mark.
Max - I really like the sound its got that short sharp sound like Jack. It means 'greatest'. Its quite mordern & youthful. Saying that i think its pretty popular atm. And our last names Dexter, some people hate the double X's in, maX deXter, but then thers people like my bro who thinks sounds cool and has a bit of a superhero feel.
Mark - I think its a really solid strong name for a boy and would age well whatever he goes on to do. You dont meet many young lads called Mark anymore and im not sure wether that makes it quite cool in a bit of a retro way like Freddy/Fred or just outdated? Also a few people havent liked the whole "a mark on the wall" thing though that hasnt really bothered me?
I'm genuinely completely 50/50 one second its Max and the next its Mark, and the opinions we've got of friends & family are all so split its hard to make a decision?
Someone said you could use Max as a nickname for Mark but although thats two in one my gut is that thats a stretch to far, and if we're going to give him the nickname max we might asa well of just called him that!
What do you think guys Max Dexter or Mark Dexter??
