Taggage courtesy of Maggs-Bunny:
This is the What’s In A Name Meme started by Two Moms In A Blog. I was tagged by Maggie from Maggsbunny.
My name is: Mark
MARK [Pronunciation - Mmmmm Arc ... like a dog with a hair-lip]
It means: From the God Mars
Its origin: Latin
Additional info - English form of Marcus. Saint Mark the Evangelist is traditionally believed to be the author of the second Gospel (Gospel of Mark) and a companion of Peter. A famous Roman bearer of the name was Mark Antony (Marcus Antonius), politician and general, also the lover of Cleopatra[Ed The Mrs is not going to like that!]. In the Medieval tale "Tristan and Isolde", King Mark is the aged ruler of Cornwall to whom Isolde is brought as a bride by Tristan. His name though was presumably of Celtic origin, perhaps derived from the element march 'horse'. This was not a particularly common name in the Middle Ages but was more frequent use by the end of the 16th century.[Ed. GHAAA ... that was a bit much!]
