The surname Martednez is a Spanish patronymic surname, an early form of hereditary surnames which were derived from the father's given name. Martednez comes from the personal name Martin, which is itself derived from the Latin Martinus, whose root is Mars, the name of the Roman god of fertility and war. The name Martednez became popular throughout Christian Europe after it was borne by the 4th century saint Martin of Tours.
