Marlon may find its origins in the Old French word, "merlin", meaning, "little hawk", or is possibly a variant of, Marcellus, which is the root name for, "Marc", as cited in the BTN listing. But it should be noted that "Marlon" and "Merlin" do not share their roots with "Marlin", which is short for "marlinspike", a sailor's tool.
