Maximilian, Maximillian or Maximiliaan (Maximilien in French) is a male given name. It was coined by Friedrich III for his son in 1459, explaining it as a combination of the names of two Roman generals, Maximus and Aemilianus. There was, however, an antecedent in Maximilianus, and several other prominent early Christians.
