I think it merits mentioning that a modern American cultural icon, Superman, also bears this name.

Clark is also the human name of the fictional character Kal-El, or known simply by Superman.

Clark Kent (Superman) was given this name because came to the world to teach, just like Jesus. Superman was based on the bible, the story of Jesus on earth.

Clark is the name of that guy in Smallville. Isn't he?

I like that Clark means "scholar" because I have put a high emphasis on education in my home. When my friend found out we were naming our son Clark, she said it was a nerd's name, but that nerds make good husbands. The Clarks I have known of were hardly nerds though. Clark Kent was Superman, Clark Gable a movie star, and my own very handsome and wonderful grandfather (who was also a wonderful husband to my grandmother) was a Clark and is my son's namesake. Donny Osmond's name happens to be Donald Clark Osmond, and he also was named after Clark Alexander Mickelson, the wonderful grandfather I mentioned above.

There is a book titled "Love Comes Softly" (authored by Janette Oke) in which the character Clark Davis is the most WONDERFUL husband a girl could ask for! So sweet, so strong, and so smart! Based on that book, I love this name.

Clark is a pretty good name for a boy. It sounds smart and handsome.

"William Clark was an explorer of the west of North America. Another famous bearer was the American actor Clark Gable."

Clark Gables actual name is "William Clark Gable" and I have heard that William Clark didn't actually have a middle name. But I'm not sure about that.

Clark Howard hosts a radio talk show where he gives people financial advice. He helps a lot of people avoid scams.

Clark is a proud name.

Sounds a bit old and stale in modern times, but I still like it. It's an old family name of mine (of most people with English ancestry at some point, probably---I see it EVERYWHERE in people's badly researched medieval family trees, it was a common surname), and I do like it, but there's something about it that I don't like, at the same time.

I've seen it spelled "Clarke" as well.

My name is Clark and my middle name is Maynard. I'm a female. I think it's original for a girl to be named Clark. I usually go by the name Clarkie to make it sound more feminine. I'm very proud of my name.

Sounds a little pretentious, as sometimes happens when popular surnames are turned into first names. But pop culture has done a lot to swank it up with movie stars and superheros. I think it would be a great middle name for a boy or girl. Mixed feelings about using it as a first name, though.

This name definitely has something. I like it.
First thing that comes to mind when hearing this name is Clark Gable.
-- StarlessNight  10/16/2012
Interesting first name. I wouldn't mind meeting someone with this name, but I wouldn't use it. It's definitely unique though, but not too weird or uncommon.

Clark Gregg, an American actor.
-- Lilly-Elise  4/20/2013
Yeah! Clark Gregg plays the awesome "Agent Phil Coulson" in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and in the Avengers. :)

The perfect tribute to the county I grew up in!
-- LV51sfan91  9/25/2015
I really like this name a lot. It sounds intelligent and great as a first name.
