Marc: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Marc

Marc

Pronunciation: MARK (key)

Origin of the name Mark:

English cognate of the Latin Marcus, a name of debated origin and meaning. Most believe it has its root in Mars, the name of the Roman mythological god of war, and thus give it the meaning “war-like.” Others, however, think it to be from mas (manly) or from the Greek malakoz (soft, tender). The name was borne in the Bible by one of the four evangelists, the author of the second Gospel.
