Clark m
English: transferred use of the surname, originally an occupational name denoting a clerk or secretary, in the Middle Ages a man in minor holy orders, who earned his living by his ability to read and write. It is now quite commonly used as a given name, especially in the United States. The word clerk derives from Latin clericus, but this more common form of the surname and given name reflects a widespread medieval shift in pronunciation from -er- to -ar- (preserved in the British but not the American pronunciation of the vocabulary word).
