Thanks! [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to add additional comments!

I have positive connections to the name because I had a funny and sweet student with the name. When I read the title I was going to mention that to me the name seems older like something you grow into, but I think it would be fine on a teenager! Also makes me think of the Youtuber Markiplier

I had a friend growing up named [name_m]Marc[/name_m] (with a c), so it has positive associations for me!

I think it fits your surname well!

All the best

My husbands name is [name_m]Mark[/name_m] ([name_m]Jonathan[/name_m]).
I lalways liked the name!

    No, it feels substantial
  2. Does it fit a teenager?
    I don’t see why not
  3. How does it fit with the sibling names Madisonand Melody?
    It’s a little different in style but the matching initial makes it work
  4. Does a certain “look” come to mind when you imagine a Mark?
    Not really
  5. Does a personality come to mind when you imagine a Mark?
    Someone fairly studious and down to earth
  6. Have you ever met a Mark?
    I believe so
  7. Does it make you think of anybody noteworthy?
    Not really
  8. Does it fit with the last name Fl3nk3r? (flen rhymes with glen, ker rhymes with her, add them together)
    I think so!

I had a friend called [name_m]Mark[/name_m] when I was in school who would be 21 now so I can definitely see the name on a teenager. He is my first association with the name and he was funny, sporty and studious so that is what comes to mind, just an all round very likeable guy. I don’t think it’s too nicknamey, in fact I don’t really see it as a nickname at all, it is its own name like [name_u]Liam[/name_u] or [name_m]Luke[/name_m]. The only famous person that comes to mind is [name_m]Mark[/name_m] Ruffalo, which is a pretty good namesake I think!

  1. Is it too “nickname-y”? No I think it’s a strong name.
  2. Does it fit a teenager? I think it fits all ages.
  3. How does it fit with the sibling names Madison and Melody? I think [name_m]Mark[/name_m], [name_u]Madison[/name_u] & [name_f]Melody[/name_f] fit very well together.
  4. Does a certain “look” come to mind when you imagine a Mark? Not really, I know of a few [name_m]Mark[/name_m]’s of various ages so my mental image of [name_m]Mark[/name_m] is varied.
  5. Does a personality come to mind when you imagine a Mark? A genuine, kind and down to earth person.
  6. Have you ever met a Mark?
    Yes many!
  7. Does it make you think of anybody noteworthy? [name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_u]Strong[/name_u], Actor
  8. Does it fit with the last name Fl3nk3r? (flen rhymes with glen, ker rhymes with her, add them together) Yes

[name_f]My[/name_f] brother’s name is [name_m]Mark[/name_m]!!

I don’t think it’s too nicknamey at all. I’ve known a lot of Marks, and the name has always sounded complete to me.
It definitely fits a teenager!
[name_u]Madison[/name_u], [name_f]Melody[/name_f], & [name_m]Mark[/name_m] sound like a lovely sibset.
I can’t answer these two, because I always imagine my brother, sorry! Maybe based off of [name_m]Mark[/name_m] Ruffalo (a [name_m]Mark[/name_m] I love, and usually the second [name_m]Mark[/name_m] to come to mind!), I’d say someone kind hearted, down to earth, friendly, and funny!
I’ve met a bunch of Marks!
[name_m]Mark[/name_m] Ruffalo, [name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_m]Hamill[/name_m], [name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_m]Twain[/name_m], [name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_m]Harmon[/name_m], [name_m]Mark[/name_m] Hoppus, [name_m]Mark[/name_m] Wahlberg, and the character [name_m]Mark[/name_m] [name_u]Sloan[/name_u] from the show [name_u]Grey[/name_u]'s Anatomy come to mind!
I think it fits very nicely with your last name!!

If you love [name_m]Mark[/name_m], you should definitely use it. I see no reason why you shouldn’t, you’ve chosen a great name :slight_smile:

I’m of a certain age where I grew up with tons of Marks, so it almost has a [name_m]Tom[/name_m]/Bill/Joe vibe for me. Perhaps it has greater energy for a younger generation who is more used to Tylers, Keegans, Jacksons, etc.

First of all, congrats on picking a possible name, and best of luck with your transition!

  1. Is it to “nickname-y”?
    I don’t think so! I’ve known a few Marks and never questioned it as a full name.
  2. Does it fit a teenager?
    Absolutely!
  3. How does it fit with the sibling names [name_u]Madison[/name_u] and [name_f]Melody[/name_f]?
    It fits perfectly in my opinion.
  4. Does a certain “look” come to mind when you imagine a [name_m]Mark[/name_m]?
    [name_m]Just[/name_m] due to having grown up with one, yes: tall, lanky, and fairly handsome. I think it’s a really versatile name and there isn’t any particular look I would be surprised to see the name [name_m]Mark[/name_m] on though.
  5. Does a personality come to mind when you imagine a [name_m]Mark[/name_m]?
    Friendly, goofy, funny, a bit athletic, slightly reserved.
  6. Have you ever met a [name_m]Mark[/name_m]?
    Yes! As mentioned, I grew up around a [name_m]Mark[/name_m]. For reference, he would be 20 now, and that’s why I can definitely see the name fitting a teenager.
  7. Does it make you think of anybody noteworthy?
    [name_m]Mark[/name_m] Ruffalo is the only famous [name_m]Mark[/name_m] that comes to mind? [name_m]Don[/name_m]’t know a ton about him but he seems cool.
  8. Does it fit with the last name Fl3nk3r?
    Yes, the one thing is that it’s quite heavy on harsh K sounds with that name, but I don’t see that as a huge issue.
