Well that's a funny story. I usually give people the easier version, my dogs name is Mini and my cousins dogs name is Max. But that's not the actual reason I choose this name. It did come from my dog, Mini though. You see, when I got her, she was smaller than a kitten. (she's a jack russel terrier) I thought that she was as small as it gets, thus maximally minimal. Somehow I rearranged those words into MinimiMax and have used this name ever since.
