The surname Martino came from the Latin name Martinus, which is a derivative of Mars, who was the Roman god of fertility and war.The popularity of the name Martin is due to Saint Martin de Tours, who was one of the best known saints in the Western World. With the spread of Christianity, people named their children after saints in the hope that the children might enjoy that saint's patronage. Martin is also one of the few saints' names, other than the names of Old English saints, found in England before the Norman Conquest.

Enormous variation in spelling and form characterizes those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. This is caused by two main factors: regional tradition, and inaccuracies in the recording process. Before the last few hundred years, scribes spelled names according to their sounds. Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Martino include De Martini, De Martinis, De Martino, DeMartini, DeMartinis, DeMartino, Martignon, Martignone, Martignoni, Martin, Martina, Martinati, Martinato, Martinelli, Martinetti, Martini, Martinilli, Martinis, Martino, Martinoni, Martinotti, Martinuzzi and many more.

First found in Brescia, where Theobaldo Martinengo, born in 930, was very important to the empire of Otto I. In 953 he donated 15 castles in the area to the empire, and his son Tebaldo led 12,000 men fighting against the Greeks for the empire. His son Leopardo became master of sixty castles, one of which he named Martinengo.
