Mario, despite the obvious reference from previous comments, is a surprisingly cosmopolitan name that could bridge certain linguistic gaps if a family has one side that is from one country and the other from another where this might be the same spoken and written. If you like this name and feel pulled by its subjective charm, then by all means select it and consider yourself lucky. :)

My name is no joke! My name is awesome. I was named after my great uncle Mario who was Italian, and not the video game character. But hey, it's better than being named after a movie character (to which my sister was named after)! Overall, I am very proud of my name.

The name Mario is such a joke. Weird name, I'd probably laugh if I met a Mario.

Mario Götze is a German footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Borussia Dortmund and the Germany national team. Although his favoured position is that of a playmaker, he can also be deployed as a striker or winger. Götze is considered to be one of the sport's best young players, possessing speed, technique, dribbling skills, and playmaking capabilities. In 2010, German Football Association's then technical director Matthias Sammer described Götze as "one of the best talents Germany has ever had."

Gosh, now I hear the Super Mario Brothers theme playing in my head. I don't really care for the name, as I really don't like the plumber himself. I can't picture the name on a real person at all. (though I think I've heard the name Mario Lopez mentioned before, I don't who he is).

In Italy the golden era of Mario was the first half of the 20th century: it was the 2nd most popular name in Rome in 1901 behind Umberto, the most popular in 1906, 1911, 1916, 1921, 1926 and 1931, the 2nd most popular in 1936 behind Franco, the 3rd in 1941 behind Franco and Roberto, the 4th in 1946 behind Roberto, Franco and Giuseppe. In other parts of Italy it was usually less used than more traditional names like Giuseppe or Giovanni.
Though in other lands Mario is often regarded as one of the most typical Italian names, it was hardly ever used before the 20th century, and it has become rather old-fashioned today.
