My internet persona is Marc, so I wouldn't really use this name myself. But hey, it's just my viewpoint, so if you want to name your son this... go right ahead!

I don't really like this spelling unless it's a nickname for something else like Marcus, otherwise if it's just an independent name pick the traditional Mark spelling.

Marc Lawrence (born Max Goldsmith) was an American actor.
Oohvintage  7/23/2013
This name is also used in The Netherlands. In most cases, Dutch parents choose it because they view it as a French name and like this French form of Mark. However, other parents use Marc as a short form for Marcus or just as a variant spelling for Mark.

A known Dutch bearer of this name is the actor and television presenter Marc Klein Essink (b. 1960).

I appreciate this name for its simplicity and classic feel. My brother-in-law's name is Marc (he's French) and he's very calm and easygoing. My father's name is Mark - he's introverted, intellectual, and a bit eccentric.

Actor Marc Warren is a famous bearer of this name. He is probably best known for playing Mr. Teatime in "The Hogfather".

It's too common and plain.

I like Marc, but I prefer it as a nickname for Marcel I think.

My father's name is Marc and when I was young, I would always misspell it because "normal" people would spell it M-A-R-K. My father spelled it M-A-R-C, so I got a little confused. I like the name, though. Although, it is a little bland. I've always hated plain names- like mine, for instance. That's why I sometimes go by "Anna Marie" instead of just "Anna". I do like the name Marc, all-in-all.

Come on, guys, what about the artist, Marc Chagall? All the Marcs I've known are Jewish. I always assumed it was a Jewish form of Mark. I guess I'm wrong.

My dad's name is Marc, and I don't think the ratings fit him. He's unintellectual (sorry Dad), he's comical, not the least bit serous, and he HATES the outdoors. My dad is also German and Jewish. Not the least bit French.

Marc can also be short for Marcus.

My father is named Marc and he is French and where he grew up everyone spoke French and it was a very popular name. If this spelling, I can't picture a child named Marc.
chantal1994  8/6/2006
I like this name better Mark. Most Marcs I have met, either spelling, seem to be very nice people.

This spelling is fairly common in the States, at least. I've known several, none with any French connection.
