Maverick is currently the #47 most popular name for baby boys born in America. For two years in the 1950’s Maverick made it into the Top 1000 name list but then disappeared for another forty years. It reappeared in the mid-90’s and started gaining steam in the last decade. From 2010 to 2021, Maverick jumped in popularity from #507 to #47. That momentum shows no signs of waning with the release of the new Top Gun: Maverick movie.

Maverick is an English-originating name meaning independent and free-spirited. It has a strong American feel with it’s individualistic and make-it-happen vibe. Indeed, it has not gained the same popularity abroad that it enjoys in the United States.
Maverick got its push into baby name popularity by the movie Top Gun. With the release of a new Top Gun in 2022, Maverick is likely to remain a favorite for baby boys in the coming years.
