Maverick

Maverick comes from an English surname. Although I couldn’t find it’s true origin and meaning, it came to refer to unbranded cattle in 19th century America, and later became identified with someone who was independent-minded or considered a rebel, someone who went their own way. This came about because of Samuel Maverick (1803-1870), a Texas lawyer and politician who refused to brand his own cattle.

Origin: uncertain
