"I love this name. I think it's uncommon, but not so unusual that it's weird. My son is named Maverick and it suits him... We don't know any other kids named Maverick." Sep. 20, 2017:
"My son is Maverick. We call him Nav or Mav man. We love it." May. 28, 2017:
"My son's name is Maverick. He's 9. Most people love it. Earlier on his mom and I grew tired of explaining why we named him Maverick (although we understood the questioning), so we began responding with, "'Cause we didn't want to name him Goose"..." Oct. 20, 2016:
"My boys named Maverick Joseph he's 8 years old when I named him people either hated it or loved it same thing with my other boy Ramzey." Sep. 18, 2016:
"Great name! My youngest is Maverick Cody. He isn't named for any characters, but I get asked that a lot. He was just uncooperative during ultrasounds in the womb. Definitely non-conformist. He is always happy, smiling, and has a genuine heart. His older brother is Jax Marly. Two boys with strong first names and middle names for loved ones. If you like the name, use it. Don't worry about what others think. My mom and sister weren't fans of the name, but they still loves him to pieces." Dec. 3, 2015:
"I'm not usually one that likes "odd" names, and very much lean towards the traditional. However, I recently met a boy named Maverick, and when I first heard the name, I thought it was the coolest name I'd heard in years. Though I believe it may be a problem with job applications down the road, and would recommend he shorten it to Rick for such things, I now have that name in my head, and will store it there and consider it as an option if I ever have a son."

"I'm naming my son Maverick different spelling tho. (Mavryck) because of my sister who passed away. her name was a virtue name and so is maverick the name means wildly independent which my sister was so i named him after her in a way." May. 2, 2015:
"We named our son Maverick Alexzander and love it, we may have gotten it after the movie Top Gun which has sentimental value to me from my childhood, and middle name from Alexander The Great," Feb. 4, 2015:
"We named our son Maverick and it is PERFECT for him! Also, everybody loves it, but we live in the mid-west, so cowboy and biblical names are pretty popular here. Our 3 other kids have light brown hair with dark brown eyes, and he came out with RED hair and green-gold eyes (very odd color but beautiful) so Maverick also fits him in that aspect... We like it from Top Gun but more so from the movie MAVERICK with Mel Gibson (origanally a show with James Garner). It's a great name, though!!!" Oct. 17, 2009:
"We named our son Maverick David. It was the only one that my hubby and I could agree on. I have to admit when he was first born, I felt like I was saying a dog's name. However, I don't feel that way at all anymore! I am so proud to introduce him. Puts a little ring in people's ear." Jul. 3, 2009:
"I love this name, that's my son's name & he is sure living up to it, lol..." Jun. 24, 2008:

"Hate it. Don't like the name or possible nicknames "Mav" "Rick". Daughter naming her son Maverick because her husband's favorite movie of all time is Top Gun. I don't like how it rolls off the tongue. The only positive about it is that it starts with an "M" and she wants her second child's name to start with an "M" like the first child." Oct. 31, 2016:
"Really don't like the name Maverick for a baby - it reminds me of the meaning 'untrustworthy'. Not a good start!" Oct. 11, 2010:
