Meanings and history of the name Maverick

A 19th century Texas rancher with the surname of 'Maverick' refused to brand his calves. The name has since been used to describe an "independent" person or way of thinking.

It's not simply following a minority way of thinking, it's being different and unique entirely and not following the general view of things if it isn't something you believe in.

Maverick - means unbranded calf

Maverick -- also means "rebel"
