Italian form of STEPHEN:From the Greek name Stephanos which means "crown". Saint Stephen was an early Christian martyr who was stoned to death, as told in Acts in the New Testament. Another Saint Stephen is the patron saint of Hungary, the first Christian king of that country (10th century). As well, this was the name of kings of England, Serbia, and Poland and ten popes. More recently it is borne by the British physicist Stephen Hawking and the American author Stephen King.

Italian, Spanish and Portuguese form of MARK. Marco Polo was the explorer from Venice who travelled across Asia to China in the 13th century.
