Origin, Meaning, Family History and Marcel Coat of Arms and Family Crest

One source claims the surname Marcel was first found in Dauphiny or Dauphine, a former province in France. Another source also claims the name is Hungarian as well as French. It derives from the Latin personal name Marcellus, a diminutive of Marcus, a first name born by a missionary to Gaul (the Roman name for France) in the 200s AD who was martyred at Bourges.

There are numerous spelling variations of this last name, including, but not limited to, Marcell, Marcele, Marceles, Marrcels, de Marcel, Marrcel, and Marrcelles. Early settlers to the United States with this surname include Julius Marcel (San Francisco 1851) and a one Mr. Marcel (Philadelphia 1805).

A one Jean dit Dauhpine Marcel (or Marceil or Marcelle) was born in 1753 in either France or St. Charles, Louisiana. He married Marie Charlotte Oubre in 1773. He had four children: Jean Baptiste, Theotista, Nicolas, and Jacques. Jacques was born in 1784 in Point Coupee, Louisiana. Nicolas was born in 1782.

Notable people bearing this surname include: 1) Etienne Marcel (1302-1358) who was Provost of the merchants of Paris under King John II of France, 2) Gabriel Marcel (1889-1973) who was a French philosopher from Paris who was a Christian existentialist, and 3) Jean-Jacques Marcel (1931-2014) who was a French soccer (football) player from Brignoles.
