Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the surname, derived from a Norman French occupational term that originally denoted someone who looked after horses, ultimately from Germanic marah ‘horse’ + scalc ‘servant’. By the time it became fixed as a surname it had the meaning ‘shoeing smith’ later it came to denote an official whose duties were to a large extent ceremonial. The surname is pronounced the same as the Latin name Martial (from Latin Mars, genitive Martis; compare Martin). This may have contributed something to its use as a given name.
691st in the U.S.
English, French, German, Polish, and Slovenian; Spanish and Hungarian (Jordán): from the Christian baptismal name Jordan. This is taken from the name of the river Jordan (Hebrew Yarden, a derivative of yarad ‘to go down’, i.e. to the Dead Sea). At the time of the Crusades it was common practice for crusaders and pilgrims to bring back flasks of water from the river in which John the Baptist had baptized people, including Christ himself, and to use it in the christening of their own children. As a result Jordan became quite a common personal name.
