Maverick Name Meaning

Maverick is an English word vocabulary that means "mind independently". Interestingly, the word was coined in the mid-1800s by ranch residents of Samuel Maverick, a Texas politician and land baron, who refused to brand the cattle from him. The name received more cachet “Wild Wild West” in 1994 thanks to the film set “Maverick” in the Old American West, starring Mel Gibson as the wisecracking gambler Bret Maverick. 1986 saw the release of the wildly popular film "Top Gun," starring a young Tom Cruise as defiant freelance naval pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell. The word and name " Maverick " are both typically American. We like to think that we are rebels: free, independent, and fearless - just like the unbranded cattle that roamed Samuel Maverick's estate. It has also become a popular brand name, such as the Dallas Mavericks basketball team or Madonna's record label, Maverick Records. Nor can we forget the self-styled “rebels” of the 2008 presidential race: John McCain and Sarah Palin.

In 1960, the name abruptly returned, not disappearing, only to resurface for another 30 years in 1994. Clearly, the resurfacing Maverick as a boy's name was influenced by the aforementioned movie, starring Mel Gibson. The name has done "well" on the charts - nothing the best in the world. It's only reached fairly low to moderate levels of use. Like Wyatt, Carson or Colton, we think of Maverick as a masculine name that is muscular and strongly connected to the ideals of the American Old West. The only thing you could say if you chose this name for your little baby: be careful what you wish for. bold independence is a great trait; we agree. It is also a commonly used name for dogs. By the way, Maverick is a number one in numerology - the independent number.
