Gender: M Meaning of Marcel: "little warrior" Origin of Marcel: French variation of Marcellus Marcel's Popularity in 2013: #799

Marcel, despite distinguished namesakes including Proust and Duchamp, suffers from a terminal headwaiter image in this country. But along with its sister name Marcella and French variation (and Jolie-Pitt pick) Marcheline, Marcel may be on the brink of a style renaissance. French Oscar winner Marion Cotillard just picked Marcel for her baby boy, and it climbed 83 spots between 2012 and 2013.
