Meaning & History

Roman cognomen, which because of the -inus suffix must be a diminutive, probably of what should be macrus. Macrus is either derived from Latin macer "thin, meagre", or a latinized form of Greek makros "large, long". A known bearer of this name was Macrinus, a Roman Emperor from the 3rd century AD.
