Additional description of the name Mark


Mark is the anglicized version of the Latin name Marcus. Marcus is one of the oldest Roman names. In antiquity and the classical era, they only had a doze name to choose from and Marcus was one of these few options. We are not sure about the etymological origin of Marcus. We have two possible sources for this name. One possibility is that it comes from Mars. Mars is the Roman god of war.  The other possibility is that it comes from the Latin adjective “mas”. The main reason behind the popularity of Mark in English-speaking countries is that Mark is the name of the Evangelist and author of the second gospel in the New Testament.

Mark has been present in the U.S. popularity charts since the start f these lists. In 1944, Mark earned a spot among the Top 100 list of most popular names for boys in the U.S. Since then, Mark has continued its upward movement. In 1955, Mark made it to the Top 10 popular names for boys in the U.S and stayed there until 1970. This marks the peak of popularity for Mark. Since those peak days, mark slowly dropped in popularity and in 2003 for the first time in 60 years, it failed to make it to the top 100 most popular names. The decline is not showing any signs of a comeback but we still believe in Mark and their ability in making the top positions. If you want your son to have a strong name, Mark is a great option for you.
