maxine

FEMININE FORM:
max
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
MAGNUS > MAXĭMUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “maxĭmus”, meaning “illustrious, mighty, glorious, famous, powerful, important, significant, remarkable, of great value”, which in turn derives from the Latin “magnus”, meaning “large, big, great, important one”. The Pontifex Maxĭmus was the high priest of the College of Pontiffs (Collegium Pontificum) in Ancient Rome. This was the most important position in the ancient Roman religion, open only to patricians until 254 BC when a plebeian first occupied this post. This name was imposed on children as a wish to be the greatest. 1) Karolus Magnus “Charles I” was the King of the Franks from 768, the King of Italy from 774, and from 800 the first emperor in Western Europe since the collapse of the Western Roman Empire three centuries earlier. 2) Gaius Julius Verus Maximus (217/220–238), also incorrectly called Gaius Julius Verus Maximinus or Maximinus the Younger was the son of the Roman Emperor Maximinus Thrax and his wife, Caecilia Paulina. 3) Pope Maximus of Alexandria was 15th Pope of Alexandria. He is commemorated in the Coptic Synaxarion on the 14th day of Baramudah (April 22). 4) Maximus of Ephesus (310–372 AD) was a Neoplatonist philosopher.
