Meaning & Origins

The original Latin form of Mark, of unknown derivation; it may possibly be connected with Mars, the name of the Roman god of war, or the adjective mas ‘male, virile’ (genitive maris). This was one of the very small number of Roman given names of the classical period. There were only about a dozen of these in general use, with perhaps another dozen confined to particular families. Marcus has been in use in the English-speaking world since the 16th century if not earlier; in the 20th century it enjoyed a considerable increase in popularity. As an African-American name it is sometimes bestowed in honour of the Black Consciousness leader Marcus Garvey (1887–1940).

Yi
Korean: the second most common surname in Korea, comprising about 16 percent of the total population. It is found in every part of the country. There are three Chinese characters for the surname Yi, but two of the three are quite rare, and one of these is not found outside North Korea. Although some sources indicate that there are as many as 546 different clans, only about 100 have been documented. The founder of the oldest clan, the Kyŏngju Yi, was named Yi Al-p’yŏng and lived in AD 32. He was one of the six original governors of pre-Shilla Korea. Aside from a few other Yi families that originated from the Kyŏngju Yi clan, most of the other 100 or so clans were formed at the end of the Koryŏ or beginning of the Chosŏn periods. Some Korean Yi families trace their origins back to China. The founder of the Chosŏn Kingdom, or Yi Dynasty, Yi Sŏng-gye, was a member of the Yi clan from Chŏnju. This clan ruled the Korean peninsula from 1392 to 1910.
