Markell is a masculine name emboldened with surprising ferocity for its elegant sound. Emerging from the Latin name Marcus, Markell shares its meaning "warlike" in reference to the Roman god of war, Mars. Yet Mars was much more than a militant deity thirsty for battle. He was long considered a comforting guardian, eager to secure peace for those under his care. As a gentle elongation of Mark, Markell embraces the many facets of the great god's character, viewing strength as a means of securing a harmonious self.
