Marchese Name Meaning
Italian: from the title of rank marchése ‘marquis’ (in Italy the rank immediately below that of duke), probably applied as a nickname for someone who behaved like a marquis, or an occupational name for a servant in the household of a marquis. However, 13th- and 14th-century documents show that the term was also used as a personal name at that time.
