His last name is pronounced "Teer-ee-ut".

Max is of German, English, Norwegian, Danish, Irish, Dutch Jewish, French Jewish, Scottish, and Northern Irish descent (most "Thieriot" families come from Germany).

Max's paternal grandmother was born in Manila, in the Philippines, to American parents, from Virginia (who were of English, and some German, descent). Max's paternal grandparents died in the sinking of the SS Andrea Doria, the Italian ocean liner, in 1956.

Max's paternal great-great-grandfather, Michael Henry "M. H." De Young, co-founded the San Francisco Chronicle, with his brother, Charles De Young, when they were both teenagers (the paper was then called The Daily Dramatic Chronicle). The De Young brothers were the children of Henry De Young, a Dutch Jewish immigrant (from Amsterdam), and of Amelia Morange (a French Jewish immigrant, from Gironde). Amelia's father, Max's great-great-great-great-grandfather Benjamin Morange, had served as the Minister from France to Spain, under Napoleon.

On his father's side, he is the grandson of Ferdinand Melly Thieriot and Frances Harrison Dade. On his mother's side, he is the grandson of Donald Ross Snyder, Jr. and Nancy Jo Neuhalfen.

Max, a vintner in his own right, co-owns vineyards in his Sonoma County hometown of Occidental.

Wine from Thieriot's vineyard, Senses, can be seen in the third season of Bates Motel during a family dinner scene.

Thieriot modeled for Gap and starred in independent short films prior to being cast in his first feature film, Catch That Kid.

Thieriot and his wife Lexi have two sons together, Beaux (2015) and Maximus (2018).

Thieriot's sister Frances is married to former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher, Michael Stutes.

At one time, Thieriot's family owned The San Francisco Chronicle.
