Possibly named after May Wood, an employee of the land developer Laguna Bell Land Company. Voters chose the name probably at the time of the city’s incorporation.

Due a poor claims history over the period of 2005 to 2010, the City of Maywood received notice from the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority (JPIA) that their workman's compensation and commercial insurance coverage was cancelled, effective June 30, 2010.  In an unprecedented move for a California incorporated city, the Maywood city council then announced the dismissal of almost all its municipal departments and staff, including the police department.  The city then contracted with the the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for police services (fire services were already provided by the Los Angeles County Fire Department) and neighboring City of Bell for most other municipal services.
