caretaker of horses
The word “marshal” describes someone who works in law enforcement, but it used to denote a person who cared for horses (“marah” meaning “horse” and “scalc” meaning “servant”). Rapper Eminem wasn’t horsing around when he ditched his real name, Marshall Mathers, as his career took off, but neither was football legend Peyton Manning, who gave his son the name in 2011.
