Marcus is one of the oldest Roman first names. It is the original Latin version of Mark. One of the most famous bearers of this name was Marcus Aurelius. He was the last of the "Five Good Emperors" and was regarded as a kind king and also a great philosopher. The etymological origin of Marcus is still unknown. Some people believe that it comes from "Mars". Mars was the Roman god of war. Some others believe that it comes from "mas" which means "male". Marcus has been around as a name in English-speaking countries since the 16th century but didn't take off since the 20th century. Marcus Garvey and his popularity among the African-Americans stimulated the popularity of this name among African-Americans.
