Baby Name DNA: Maverick
Maverick names make a child stand out, transcending gender, cultural, and image stereotypes. Read more about Maverick.
Maverick names are individual in every way: rare, unconventional, dancing to their own drummer. Maverick names will make a child stand out and mark them with a unique persona rather than help them be liked or fit in with their peers.
Individuality and uniqueness in the truest senses of the words are the most important qualities of Maverick names. Examples of Maverick names already in use include Halo, Hawthorne, Midnight, and Zendaya, but the only limit is your imagination.
Baby names that fit the Maverick type buck tradition, cementing a child’s status as the first and only of their kind. A truly unique name, one that misses the five-baby cutoff in the official dataset, would be quintessentially Maverick. Options include Dree or March, Tarot or Vrai.
Most Maverick names transcend gender, cultural, and image stereotypes. But the truest Maverick name is one you create yourself, as ultra-Mavericks Elon Musk and Grimes did with their son’s name.
People whose Baby Name DNA is primarily Maverick are non-conformists, striving for uniqueness in all aspects of their lives. In school, you were unlikely to be a part of the popular crowd, not that it mattered to you anyway. Instead, you were probably content to follow your own path. The pursuit of passion was, and still is, more important than the approval of others.
Likewise, if you love Maverick names, your career is likely far from standard, and ideally something that excites you. Whether it’s as a robotics engineer or secret agent, the only way you’re going to be happy is if you can authentically say "I did it my way." Or maybe you’re the type to go off the grid, only satisfied if you can truly live free of rules and restrictions.
Maverick parents view family as a democracy. They treat their children as adults, respecting their opinions and autonomy from birth. The children of Mavericks are encouraged to collaborate with their parents on the household rules and help determine the consequences should they break them. A Maverick parent seeks to foster independence in their child and hopes that he or she will grow up to be a free-thinker who questions the status quo.
