Mavis

Meaning name Mavis
English bird name, meaning "song thrush."
Mave - Variant spelling of Irish Maeve, meaning "intoxicating." 
Mavourneen - Irish name derived from the phrase mo múirnín, meaning "my honey, my sweet one."
Mavreena - Variant spelling of English Maureen, meaning "obstinacy, rebelliousness" or "their rebellion."
Maverick - English surname transferred to forename use, derived from the vocabulary word maverick, originally meaning "unbranded range animal." This was the surname of Samuel Maverick (1803-1870), a Texas cattleman who refused to brand his cattle. Its use as a personal name first began in the early 1990s after the release of the movie "Maverick" starring Mel Gibson. The sense of "unconventional person," is first recorded in 1886, and seems to have developed from the notion of being "independent, masterless."
