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

I like this name better Mark. Most Marcs I have met, either spelling, seem to be very nice people.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

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.
