"my nephew is named marshall. he was born 2-14-07 yes he has his own holiday lol. its not common in india they find his name strange.his father wanted a simple name that was not from his country since marshall is raised hear in america. i find that his name is of a old soul and wise in nature. i like the name spelled either way its just a cool name and i pray he grows up to be honest and well rounded as many marshll's before him."

"Marshall is my husband and i love his name! You really don't meet to many, and they are unique. People always want to leave off an L when spelling his name, it drives me nuts. He was named after the Marshall Tucker Band back in the 70's." Mar. 19, 2008:
"My own name is Marshall. People often call me "Marshall Mathers" because of the CD with that name produced by rapper Eminem." Nov. 27, 2007:

"Marshall was my daddy's name and I like it. It is so strong and manly." Jul. 3, 2015:
"My husband is named Marshall, and our second son's middle name is Marshall. I love the name; not too common but very masculine. Can't go wrong with this name :)" Apr. 16, 2012:
"We're probably choosing this as a middle for our son. I'm not all that crazy about it, but we're doing all M's for middle names. He doesn't like Mitchell all that much, so he's getting Marshall for the first, I'm getting Mitchell for the second." Apr. 3, 2012:
"This is my boyfriend's name, BUT his parerents spelled it Marcial. Random! He can't stand it, but I think rather than being annoyed/ashamed of it, he should own the unusualness of it!" Jan. 8, 2012:
"I named my son Marshall. Not because of Eminem as most people assume but after Marshall McLuhan the Canadian media theorist. I also simply love the name. Strong and simple it conjures images of horses, lawmen, gunslingers and of course the most wonderful Hollywood cowboy - Sam Elliott. If my son turns out like Sam Elliott I will be the most incredible mother in the world. One L or two, Marshall is a fantastic first name." Mar. 4, 2009:
"Sounds a bit out of date for a modern boy (I don't thin Eminem could have helped), but I reckon this makes a cutting-edge girl's name." Jun. 3, 2008:
"Marshall is a sexy name....it'll be the name that brings sexy back!" Mar. 22, 2007:
