Marquis means "marquess, marquis" in French.

I don't care much for this name. It looks like it should be pronounced "mar-kwis".

I don't like this name. Since this is a title, it sounds pretentious and may lead to a superiority complex. On the other hand, it sounds trashy and ghetto.

This name is actually not the most "ghetto" thing I've ever heard. It actually sounds quite nice--but probably wouldn't look/sound right outside America. For example, if the bearer ever took a trip around Europe, his name might lead to some awkward social encounters--or he could turn it into a great ice breaker!
However, Marquise is a truly awful name. But Marquis... not that bad.

General Marquis Warren is the name of Samuel L Jacson's character in "The Hateful Eight" although in the movie it's not pronounced the French way, and the s is not silent.
