Meaning:Dedicated to Mars; A descendant of Mars
Where most monikers have been altered over the ages, parents probably know a Latin name when they see one. Martinus, a name usually given to boys, means “dedicated to Mars” or “a descendant of Mars.” Its “-us” ending—found in names like Spartacus or Magnus—tells of its roots in ancient Roman history. While Martin has become much more popular throughout the years, Martinus is actually thought to be the original. Perhaps it’ll make a trendsetter out of your little one, too!
