I don't really like this. I prefer Marcus. It's stronger sounding and more handsome. The reason I don't like this name is NOT because of the Polo association. I just don't really see the appeal, but it's a lot better than some other names, like Gabby.

I just love this name. It has a nice masculine quality that never feels tiresome. Good choice for someone looking to alternatives for Mark.

Marco is a great name that is 100 times better than the tired and boring alternatives of Marc and Mark.

I LOVE the name Marco so much, and it is cute, fits any age, is formal, perfect for any classic formal occasion, and I don't mind the Polo association, as when Marco gets older, he will learn about it. Perfect name for any boy! (DON'T USE THIS FOR A GIRL) I agree with Anonymous User, who commented on 5/16/20, I hate Mark, like Marc, but best of all, I LOVE Marco, so so much! Handsome!

Marco and playing in the pool may pose a problem with this name.

From when I was in elementary school all the way through high school, if we had a substitute teacher they were excessively saying polo, the subs being over the age of 50 most of the time thought it was funny, but I remember I would usually fake laugh, then not laugh at all and pretend I did not hear them, then I would overly laugh, laugh a lot, and make it obvious that I was not seriously laughing and I did not care. Luckily they stopped doing it after they felt embarrassed.

I’ve not met a Marco in my life. But it seems like an okay name that is not too short nor long.

Marco is one of those names that I rarely hear in my part of the world. It sounds simple and could be suitable for any young person till middle age. The elderly period may pose a problem in my humble opinion as it does not sound like one of those first names that could age well as the person reaches his latter days.

My name is Marco and I couldn't love it more than I already do. It is a very rare name, I was the only Marco in my school for five years before someone from Spain moved to my town and their name was Marco. We always refer to each other as 'Me', and have a lot of fun talking abount the variants and diminutives of Marco. It has always bothered me when I say, "Hi, my name is Marco", to someone and they would always say, you guessed it, "Polo". I don't understand if they mean the game or the explorer, but even so, it has and will always bother me. When I was two, I was at a pond where people were playing Marco Polo. Whenever they shouted Marco, I would say "I'm here!". I worry that as I grow up, I will be picked on because of my name, but the more I say it, the better I like it, mostly because of the Co syllable. It kind of reminds me of Petco, because I LOVE dogs! Anywho, Marco is an extremely smart, but rough name, and has an even temper, but will break if you push too hard. Not too geeky, but not too jockish.

Marco is a cool name for a boy. Though if you had to call out to a Marco in public, somebody will most likely say Polo back.
