The popular version of the Martin surname in Ireland is Martyn. It derives from the Latin name Martinus, which is a diminutive form of Mart-, the stem of the word for "war" (cf. Engl. "martial") and also the Roman god Mars. The meaning is usually rendered "of war", "warlike", or in reference to the god as "of Mars". It is the most common French surname.
