I’ve heard that name twice lately , not from celebrities, but just while out and about running errands.

I thought everyone was going to bash this name. I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks this is one of the coolest names ever. I’m not a particular fan of Noah, but it works well with Maverick, it sort of softens it a bit.

great name – original, but not ridiculous or crazy

Congratulations Will and Alli. I spoke with Will’s mother a few weeks ago and she told me that the baby’s name was going to be Maverick. I think that it is a great name. Will ask your mother about my name, she will have a long one for you. I am aname person. I just think it’s a great name and again congratulations Will and Alli!!!!
