Descending from a long and ancient family of Neapolitan origin since 1860 before the unity of Italy or the kingdom of the two Sicilies
The origin of the surname comes from the Latin supernome Martinus, which then became its own name. It is based on Martis, the martial form of Mars ("Mars"), and thus means "consecrated to Mars", "devoted to Mars". In both cases this, like other names with the same etymology (Marco, Marcello, Marzio, Marciano, Marziale and Mario), testifies to the enormous popularity of the worship of the god of war and the spring rebirth of the ancient Romans.
The name spread particularly during the Middle Ages, in Christian domains, thanks to the devotion to St. Martin of Tours. The name Martinian is its derivative in patronymic form.
