Female version of the name Mark (Marcus) : Saint Mark was the author of the second Gospel in the New Testament. He is the patron saint of Venice, where he is supposedly buried.

Markella is a girls name that means warm hearted and good friend. Very independant, strong and opinionated but can have a very casual and relaxed demeanor.

Markellas can be extremely stubborn, but once you have sat them down and talked to them they usually get all warm and fuzzy again. Lover of the feline species. Usually pick names for their cats that are not original!
Dont be so Markella!!!

(= Dont be so stubborn!!!)

no other example can be given at this moment in time.
