If honesty, generosity, and courage sound like traits to live by, then your little Markese can be your "nobleman." A name originating in France and spawned from Marquis, Markese has a secondary meaning of "lord of the borderlands." Marquis was a title used to reflect a person's nobility and a rank used for aristocrats who had land in vulnerable border areas. The position of Marquis was lower than Duke but higher than Baron, Earl, and Viscount. The rank of baby Markese is above them all.
