  1. Marcus is named after his father but his middle name is the name he was supposed to have. I am okay with his name now but we dont ever call him Marcus unless hes in school because his teachers and friends call him Marcus. We the family call him Ayden (his middle name).
    He was suppose to be Ayden Marcus but his dad didn’t want it that way so we flipped it that way we both got what we wanted.
    I should have went with the way i wanted it because no one calls him Marcus its pointless.
    Marcus is also like his brother lovable and caring but with a feisty attitude.

  2. I named him after a young football role model.name is unique not so many people have it

  3. I choose marcus aftwr my dads name .
    I love his name thats why chosen it.
    My baby is the most beautiful little guy I’ve ever seen

  4. His dad wanted a jr.
