Marcus is a masculine given name of Ancient Roman pre-Christian origin derived either from Etruscan Marce of unknown meaning(possibly from the Etruscan "mar" which means "to harvest"), or referring to the god Mars.

Hamblin is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hamblin family lived in Gloucestershire. Their name, however, is local reference of Old French derivation. This surname, of English origin, is derived from the Anglo-Norman French given name "Ham(b)lin", a double diminutive of "Hammone", itself coming from the Norman personal name "Hamo(n)", which derives from the Germanic "Haimo", a short form of the various compound name with the first element "haim" meaning "home."
