Marcus Genealogy & History

Marcus is chiefly a French, German, and Jewish name now, but it was originally Roman. It was taken from the personal name Marcus, which was derived from the word mar, meaning to gleam (or possibly from Mars, the Roman name for Ares, the god of war). Another possibility is that it was locational, given to people who lived in or near a monastery named Sanctus Marcus (St. Mark). Either way, the name owes its popularity to the evangelist (gospel-writer) St. Mark. Written Marcus family history starts with one Heinrich Mark (an alternate spelling), who lived in Biberach, Germany, in 1390. Marcus genealogy includes chemistry Nobel laureate Rudolph Marcus.
