The distinguished Czech surname Martineck is composed of two elements: "Martin," derived from the Latin "Martinus," and the characteristic suffix "-ek," indicating "son of." Thus, the surname Martineck indicates "a son of Martin."

Martineck Early Origins



The surname Martineck was first found in Bohemia, where the name is thought to have emerged. It was likely first borne by a son of someone named Martin during the Middle Ages, when hereditary surnames were first beginning to emerge in the region. The young Martineck family was instrumental during this turbulent period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Bohemian society.
