Etymology

Latin Martinus, "of or like Mars" or "little Mars", from Mars (stem Mart-) + -inus, diminutive adjective suffix.

Furthermore, the name (i.e. Mars) is likely to have been brought into Latin from elsewhere, likely the Etruscan Maris which was their name for the same deity.

  • 1767 Laurence Sterne: Tristram Shandy: Book IV ( Slawkenbergius's Tale ):
    Luther was not born in the year 1483, but in 84; and not on the 22nd day of October, but on the 10th of November, the eve of Martinmas day, from whence he had the name of Martin. - - - Now you see, brother Toby, he would say, looking up, "that christian names are not such indifferent things;" - Had Luther here been called by any other name but Martin, he would have been damned to all eternity - Not that I look upon Martin, he would add, as a good name - far from it - 'tis something better than a neutral, and but a little - yet little as it is, you see it was of some service to him.
