I find it cute sounding.
This is just embarrassing.

It's on the same level as Legend or Royal.

It was also made popular by the bad show "Teen Mom" which makes it very tacky.
This is on my names list for boys, including Cody, Kyle and Nolan! Love this!

Middle names, cause why not.
Maverick Joshua
Maverick Rylan
Maverick James
Maverick John
Maverick Kevin
(These sound good to me)
To me, this is a name for a dog. It is not a good name for a boy and an even worse name for a man. Imagine if one named one's son Maverick and he became a lawyer or a doctor. That would be on his diploma. I don't know about you but I'd much rather have John or Charles on my diploma! It just strikes me as the sort of name one gives a child when one has not considered that children grow up and become their own people. Cute name for a kid I suppose. But he'll be an adult.
Ugly and unusual name.
This name is both unique and handsome. As well as modern and trendy. Move with the times people, just saying.
It's super popular in America. And we know why...
Our son's name is Maverick. Maverick James. Maverick means everything from exceptional, independent, trailblazer and extraordinary. I see no problem with this strong original name. Look up Social Security’s annual list. It will give you a more modern and accurate account of names in the current and new age.

Kids these days are not named Jennifer, Katie, or Ashley. Just as boys are not all Anthony, Christopher, Jason, and Jamie. In the 2000’s these unique names are what is used way more often than old fashioned names. Maverick is #73. People get stuck in the past and miss the future and current. Look at the official roster stats on names. Our other son is Luca (#105 as per Social Security), and climbing exceptionally fast, just like Maverick. Luca means light, creative, selfless and creative. I’m very proud of both of my son's names. They are unique but no, neither are considered outrageous like the older boomer generations seem to think they are.

Personally, I grew up a Caitlin until I changed it to just Cait because I had 8 “Caitlin”s in my chorus. I hated it. No-one wants to be called by their first name plus the first letter of their last name. Kids and people deserve to feel like a person and adding an ending initial took that for me.
This is ridiculous as a first name. Maybe good for a dog but I can’t imagine saddling a poor kid with it.
Because of the meaning of the name, I think it should only be used on children who are going to be home schooled. Because if you send your child to regular school, the chances are that the child will not end up a Maverick, but just another conformer.
I like a lot of names with “rick” in it. This is one of them, and my favorite, next to Fredric.
First thing that comes to mind is the merchandise of YouTuber Logan Paul. In my opinion, this name just seems really tacky to use for that reason.
Pretty ugly.
I'll admit this name is kind of a guilty pleasure for me. It's probably more usable as a nickname or surname.
In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Maverick who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 2, 994th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.
Gosh no. It sounds ridiculous, like naming a kid Legend.
I think of a cigarette brand I remember seeing in stores. That association ruins it for me, but I don't hate the name.
I always associate this name with doctors (family practices or hospitals) things of that nature. Maverick isn't terrible, it just makes a more plausible surname.
I named my son Maverick in 2011.
Here's why.

Criteria used during selection -

1. Uncommon name

2. Doesn't rhyme with anything (later found out fabric does, but it would be a difficult word to use in a derogatory way)

3. A name representing individuality, as opposed to herd mentality, an inventor, resourceful

4. Same initials as me, his father MDP

After hearing the name used during the McCaine campaign, and being fiercely anti-Obama, it became the most appealing name on my list.
I love this name because my name is Maeve and it is sort of like that. I think of the movie Chasing Mavericks.
I really like this name. I know it's a new name, and kind of trendy, but I think it's really strong sounding.
I think it's odd that the origin of the name is cited as 'it comes from someone's surname'.

The origin of 'Maverick' as a surname has Celtic roots and originated in Wales and Ireland. It comes from the Welsh 'mawr ryce' meaning 'gallant hero'.
I agree that this is a cool name, but it's not only positives like the comments are suggesting.

Sarah Palin kind of ruined this name when she was running for office with McCain because her campaign platform was that "we are mavericks and Americans, not Republicans". However, Palin was given so much negative publicity during this time and she is not the most respected person in U.S. history. So that's one con.

Secondly, this is a hard name to live up to. If their name is Maverick, and they're a complete follower or conformist, it's a waste of a name. Naming your child this is like naming them Adonis or Hero or Honor or Patience. They're going to have to work to fulfill this name.

But if the Palin thing doesn't bother you and you think you can raise your child to act like a Maverick, then I'd say go right ahead with this name because it is pretty cool.
This is literally the coolest name possible.
I like Maverick. I like the meaning and the sound. We thought about using it for our first son.
I love the name Maverick.

It's strong and masculine sounding, and not too popular (only ranked #504 in popularity in 2010). It's got some cool nickname options too; Mav, Mavvy, Ricky, etc. I have a younger cousin with this name, I've always really liked it.
I had not heard of this as a given name until I met a child named Maverick. It sounds strong and reliable to me, but not traditional like I usually prefer. I like its meaning very much, and it seems to fit the character of the boy, too. He is like a little man, very responsible for a middle school-aged child, but liked by his peers. I could easily see him being a force of positive change along his path of life.
I like the meaning of this name, though the name is a bit weird. I think a good girl version of the name is "Maveri."
I used to know a guy named Maverick. I thought and still think it is an awesome name. It's unique (as the meaning refers to!), and it's just a plain cool name. How awesome would it be to walk up to a person and say, "Hey, my name's Maverick!"? It'd be hard to follow that!
John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, regularly claimed the title "Maverick" for himself, as did his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
This name is beautiful. I think it's a perfect name for a boy. It sounds friendly and strong at the same time.
My friend had a baby book and it said Maverick meant "friend of the sea".
I think this is a very cool and masculine name. I picture a man with big muscles, charm and bedroom eyes. LOL I'm sure if there is a Maverick everyone calls him Rick for short.
Maverick in Hebrew actually means "shiny", "bright", "brilliant".
The person who didn't brand his cattle was Samuel Maverick; because his didn't, his cattle often wandered off and were captured by other surrounding ranchers. He was trying to raise some quick money (because the beef industry in the south was booming). But anyway, I'm getting off track. People who are said to be "Mavericks" are people are different, almost not normal. They're usually people who don't do what people think is right but what is popular. Some mavericks in history might be Sam Houston, Ben Franklin, and Abe Lincoln. Get what I mean?
I also wanted to point out that it is also the name of a deck of cards, a basketball team, an old t.v. show and Madonna's record label. Tom Cruise's character in the movie Top Gun is referred to as Maverick.
What a cool name to have. "Hi, I'm Maverick..."
Bret Maverick was a gambler in the movie and T.V. show "Wild, Wild West." Maverick is also the name of a car.
