Why name baby after a single flower when they could have a whole island? Martinique is a feminine name of French origin thought to be based on the Caribbean Madinima or Madiana, an island renamed Martinique, as told by Christopher Columbus. Martinique is believed to mean “island of flowers” or “fertile island with luxuriant vegetation,” however, its natives may have also referred to their home as the “island of iguanas.” Martinique flows with a confident air and offers a chic place name for a worldly child.
