Once used to signify a promising young warrior, Marc is a French masculine name born from the Roman God Mars. Much like Marcus, Marc shares a two-fold meaning, the first being "dedicated to Mars" or "warlike." Others consider Marc a play on the Latin mas, meaning "virile," "brave," or "male," keeping the name in close orbit to the ancient god of war.
