By any other name?

CHALLENGE BY: quirkies
CHALLENGE MADE: 07/14
TITLE of challenge: By Any Other Name?
Details: How did X5-452 become Max?
I was just thinking of Lyra's fabulous fic Alec and realized I've never read a description of how Max got her name. Why did her unit decide to use names? Did she name herself? Was she named by a sibling? Did they try out a few names before settling on Max? Why Max? Did she know it was usually a boy's name? Could be fluff, or angst, or anything in between.
