The surname De martini 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.

De martini Early Origins



The surname De martini was 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.

De martini Spelling Variations



Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname De martini. These spelling variations 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.
