Marcel Pagnol, French filmmaker, playwright and novelist.
-- Arialblack  12/29/2009
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.

Look up "Marcel the Shell with shoes on" on YouTube. Cutest video ever.

I like the look of the name but the pronunciation sounds kind of dopey. I do, however, like the French pronunciation.

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.

Marcel Bezençon was president of the European Broadcasting Union from 1955-1970; you could also say he's the father of the Eurovision Song Contest.

I thought this was a girl name. Awkward.

Marcel Nguyen is a German gymnast. In 2012, he became an Olympic silver medalist after competing at the 2012 London Olympic Games. He's a soldier (currently ranked Corporal) in the Bundeswehr (German military) since July 2007, beginning when he was training in the Bundeswehr Sports Development Group (Sportfördergruppe der Bundeswehr) in Munich.

Born in Munich, to a German mother and a Central Vietnamese father, Nguyen began gymnastics at the age of four, and at seven years of age, joined TSV Unterhaching. Since 1995, he has trained at the regional training center in Munich. Since 1997, Nguyen was part of the squad perspective, where Andreas Hirsch and Jens Milbradt were his coaches. He rose quickly from the D- to B-squad. Since 2002, he has started for the Junior National Team. In 2005, Nguyen was the German junior champion on parallel bars, runner-up on rings and third in the vault. That same year he took part in the World Championships in Melbourne for the first time and placed 16th on the parallel bars.
