*Marcus* is a gorgeous name for any male. It has a pleasant sound and a rich history, and it works well for all ages. One of my top ten!

To me, Marcus is someone who is a bit of a rebel but has a strong will and is noble. Mm, my kind of guy.

I know several Marcuses and all of them but one were very violent children, more violent than your average boy. I don't know if I believe that the name influences the behaviour, but there's something fishy about Marcus. The meaning that I have heard for it, not surprisingly, is "he who beats"! Now they're all teenagers though and I don't see them often enough to know if they've grown out of beating people or not!

Whether a child is violent or belligerent or not has nothing to do with the name and everything to do with his or her parents. Names do not influence behaviour; the attitudes of the parents do.
I think Marcus is a perfectly fine name.

In Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, one of the three Volturi leaders is named Marcus. Not much is mentioned about him, execpt that he has the power to see relationships between people, and that he was married to Aro's, another leader of the Volturi, sister, before Aro killed her beause he didn't like the two of them together and Marcus was more useful to him in his search for power.

Just thought you would like to know that the names Mark and Marcus have both Hebrew and Greek origins.

Marcus is written this way in Greek:
Μάρκος

Marcus is written this way in Hebrew:
מרקוס

Hitchcock's Bible Dictionary gives the meaning of Mark and Marcus as:
polite; shining

Saint Mark the Evangelist (Hebrew: מרקוס; Greek: Μάρκος; 1st century), also known as John Mark, is traditionally believed to be the author of the Gospel of Mark and a companion of Saint Peter.

Marcus Belby, a "thin and nervous-looking" Ravenclaw boy. A candidate for the Slug Club because his Uncle Damocles invented Wolfsbane potion in J.K. Rowling's 6th novel Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince.

For some odd reason, I have always disliked the name Marcus. I think it's because of the way it sounds: too harsh and rough. It reminds me of a hoarse throat. The name itself seems a tad silly, like the word circus, or too brooding, like someone concentrating on something unpleasant. I don't dislike the ending of Marcus, or the fact that it sounds old, just the annoyingly harsh sound of the name.

What a great, strong name! This can easily grow with a person.

A great name! Strong and powerful.

Hiya! Marcus is a very common name in Sweden. I don't know if it is necessary to mention in description but I wanted to tell you anyways. [noted -ed]

I'm almost 100% certain that I've read in a book about Swedish names that Marcus/Markus means "protected by Mars"/"son of Mars". Though I can't say for sure so I will look it up later.

I prefer Marc or Mark, since the -us ending is both outdated and pretentious. I don't even bother commenting on other names with this ending since only ridiculous people who bemoan the collapse of the Roman empire would ever use them.

I absolutely love this name. By far my favorite name for a baby boy. It sounds strong, intelligent, kind, brave. A perfect vision of a boy to me! :)
-- willarose93  3/28/2010
I like it. It sounds strong and courageous. Mark sounds like you "left a mark" on something, but Marcus sounds nice.
-- Black_X  5/11/2010
Very cool name. I like it.

Mark also means Autumn or Fall.

Marcus Mumford, of the British band Mumford and sons.

I love this name. It does vaguely remind me a bit of "Mucus" after I adoringly started finding cutesy ways to pronounce it, such as "Muk-us" or "Me-kiss".. But I didn't even notice that before. Such a handsome name anyway.

The name means "War like", "of war", "god of war", or "war". It most likely evolved from the Roman god of war, Mars. In the Underworld series, there is a vampire named Marcus. Marcus is one of the three leaders in the vampire form of government in the Twilight Saga. Marcus Lattimore is a famous NFL player.
