Maymont is a village in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

The plaque at the entrance to the town says that the Village of Maymont was named for May Montgomery, niece of Mr. McKenzie (of McKenzie and Mann, railway construction contractors, who built the CNR line through the area in 1905). Miss Montgomery had asked her uncle to name the village Montgomery, but he said he couldn't because a town in Manitoba already had that name. So, he took her first name and the first syllable of her last name and combined them to form the name, Maymont.
