Martin

dedicated to Mars
ORIGIN: Latin
POPULARITY: 484
A sturdy, no-nonsense name, Martin is taken from the Latin name Martinus, which came from Mars, the Roman god of war. The name’s popularity in the ancient Christian world was influenced by St. Martin of Tours, a selfless fourth-century bishop who was the patron saint of France. Though Martin comes with a old-fogy pedigree, it has been on an upward swing on the baby-name charts. A modern-day bearer of the name was civil rights legend Martin Luther King Jr.
