An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


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

Martinek Early Origins



The surname Martinek 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 Martinek 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.
