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


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

Martunka Early Origins



The surname Martunka 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 Martunka 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.
