Other Origin(s):Roman
Meaning:Warlike; Strong; Young warrior
If you're looking to give baby a strong start on their epic journey, nothing captures the fighting spirit quite like Marcella. Latin in origin, this feminine name owes its might to the Roman god of war, Mars. As a variation of Marcellus, Marcella encompasses an array of formidable qualities courtesy of the divine protector, including "warlike" and "strong." Not satisfied with being linked to the virtuous level-headed god, Marcella may also lay claim to the meaning "young warrior."
