Meaning and originality:
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 dozen of names 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. In this meaning Marcus would probably refer to a warrior. The other possibility is that it comes from the Latin adjective “mas” which means ‘male, virile’. 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.
