Italian place/surname, meaning 'of St. Mark' (the Evangelist).
St. Mark (San Marco) is the patron saint of Venice, and sometimes 'marciano' is used to mean 'person/thing from Venice'.
Pronounced 'marchano' ('cha' as in Charles), three syllables, stress on the second.
Never used as first name in Italy. The Italian version of Martin is Martino.
