About Maximilian

Derived from the Latin word maximus, meaning ‘greatest’. The name Maximilian was invented by Frederick the 3rd, a German emperor, by splicing the surnames of the Roman generals Scipio Aemilianus and Quintus Fabius Maximus to name his son. The name is therefore popular in countries that speak German.
