"Maven" comes to us from the Hebrew, by way of Yiddish. In Hebrew, "mavin" means "he knows". So a "maven" is someone in the know, a real expert, or maybe sometimes just a self-styled expert.
"You need to decide on a new computer? Talk to my cousin, he just graduated from CalTech, he's a real maven."

A Yiddish word that can be traced back to the 1960's. Suddenly became popular with pretentious female 'new media' types who were not confident enough to call themselves an expert.
Use: "I'm a social media maven".
Translation: "I'm a pretentious twat who uses Twitter. A lot".
