"Maynard (Henry Maynard) first came to America from England in 1698 as a Merchant (Sea Captain) and bought land in Annapolis Maryland. His ancestor fought with William the Conqueror to "Modernize" England in 1066. The earlier Maynard spelled his name Maignard, since he was French. The Maynard/Maignard Castle is in Normandy France."

"I am the only one who is named Maynard either at school, military, work or circle of friends. You never get confused who I am.
But it was hell in elementary school" Nov. 24, 2010:
"I LOVE this name! It was my grandpa's name, whom I adored and I hope to make it a future son's name! Thankfully my husband is okay with that and he really likes the nickname Mayne! I think it's a cute name that should make a comeback just like the girl's names, Ella, Ava, etc." Dec. 28, 2009:
"This is my son's name. He is five and has learned to spell it with ease. It is often mispronounced, but I can't understand why. We're proud of his name...it is unusual, strong and masculine." May. 18, 2009:
"The name Maynard is great! We didn't name our child Maynard, but we did name our dog, a Great Dane. But, we found Maynard in a very old dictionary one night and it was a noun, meaning of great power and masculine." Nov. 25, 2006:
