Last name origins & meanings:

  1. French (of Norman origin) and English: nickname for someone who behaved like a marquis or an occupational name for a servant in the household of a marquis, from Old Northern French marquis. The title originally referred to the governor of a border territory (from a Germanic word; compare March 1 and Mark 2). Marquises did not form part of the original French feudal structure of nobility; the title was first adopted by the Counts of Toulouse because of their possessions in the border region beyond the Rhône.
  2. Scottish: shortened form of McMarquis (Gaelic Mac Marcuis), a patronymic from the personal name Marcus (see Mark).
