I just stumble across this chord randomly:
x
7
9
9
8
x

I wondered how would you name it?
Was it a Gmaj13 with a added b7?

Much about naming a chord has to do with the context in which it is played. 
In the example you gave, what are the chords that happen before and after it? (Maybe give a couple measures before and after for extra clarity).

Erm, no.
I just kind of stumble across it quite randomly, it just sounds good as I hold it.

A dominant by nature doesn't contain a major 7th note.  Nor would a maj7th chord contain a b7th. 
However, if you consider "moving lines" that happen over chords, these things can occur, but I personally wouldn't want to call a chord as you described.
(Just my opinion)

If you like that chord, try to find a different chord that would precede and follow it.  Does it make harmonic sense?  Do the voices move between the chords in a way that sounds good?

Seems to work as a C#11#9 moving to an F#7 type. Could function as a 2, 5 in the key of B.
