Maverick Origin and Meaning

The name Maverick is a boy's name of American origin meaning "independent, nonconformist".
At the rate it's growing, Maverick soon won't seem like such a maverick anymore. Heard first in a 1950s James Garner western TV series, and then as the Tom Cruise character in Top Gun, Maverick symbolizes an unfettered, free spirit.
