An Old French variation of the name would be Marquis and the Latin variant would be Mark which is most commonly used version of the name in the United States.


Here is the meaning of this unique baby boy name.

The definition of the name Marques is one that is of or dedicated to the planet Mars. It is a name that is exclusive to boys and one of title ranking below the rank of a duke yet below an earl. No wonder the name has a very strong feel to it as another meaning of Marques is "The god of war".

According to US census information for the last decade (1990), the baby boy name Marques is a very rare first name for boys but ranked very highly as a surname.
