The prominent surname Marcou originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The surname Marcou is derived from the ancient Latin personal name Marcus, which indicated that the bearer was a follower of Mars, the Roman god of war and agriculture.
