It was one of my favorite names for men, until I married one. Now it kind of has a negative aftertaste.

Mark is a very overly used name in America and I'm sure it's well know in other countries as well. I've known about three people with this name personally and all of them are hard working and honest people. The trait to be silly and creative seems to follow with this name too. Though I have to say that the Polish form of Mark is my favorite. It's more classy. Overall, Mark is a good name with great personality but only if you can overcome the fact that it is overused. Though it's probably not as overused as Christopher or Jacob. =D That's a plus.

I have a lot of friends named Mark and they are all kind of self centered and always around girls. If you are thinking about naming your son Mark, I like the name but not the personalities.

I was happy when I discovered my cousin is named this so now if I ever marry and have a son, I can say that this name is my cousin and not be lying. I don't like this name, mainly because, every Mark (including my cousin) except one are all really good people. Unfortunately, the latter gives me bad thoughts of the name since I've known him soooooo very long now. Otherwise, it's a good name.

Mark is such a stable and incredibly usable name. I think that it's very under appreciated.

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.

I like Marcus but not Mark because it sounds like BIRTH MARK or a mole. Ew. It's really boring and nerdy to me.

This is my dad's name and it is a very lovely name. All the Mark's I have met have been hard working, extremely friendly, and very funny. This name is highly usable as a boy's name.

It's funny how many posters I'm seeing that scorn the name Mark for sounding like he's "marking things up" or "leaving marks all over the place." I've always thought that the sentiment "to leave your mark on something/someone" was very powerful, especially when conveyed in someone's name. I'd have to be one of those "refrigerator mothers" if I ever had a son and didn't feel like he'd left some kind of mark on me.

Mark is such a strong, handsome name. In writing, it is neat and looks as good as it sounds. What a fine, underused classic name!

"Mark" is an incredibly classic, timeless, professional and handsome name. I find it an honoring bow to the old-world, yet a welcoming wave to contemporary life. A breath of fresh air from all the "Jayden"s.
I only support the traditional spellings... in other words: Mark, Marc. Taking it a further "kre8tiv" step to "Marck" instantly murders the elegant pleasure.

"Markie/Marky" is an irresistible nickname, may I add.
