This is a good strong name, and it's not frequently used at all. It doesn't sound feminine, but maybe a bit wimpy. It could always be shortened to Marc though, if he felt that way.

It's also Croatian.

There are many, many translations of this name. Out of all of them, I would select this one because of the association with Marcel Duchamp.
