A few people mention Martha Kent as a famous bearer. Another famous (although likely not by first name) bearer within the DC universe is the late mother of Bruce Wayne/Batman, Martha Wayne, wife of the also late Thomas Wayne.

Apparently Martha was a really mumsy name when those characters were created! lol

It's not my favourite name but it's okay and cute-ish, I think.

Someone mentioned George and Martha as a story about two hippos. Also, George and Martha Washington. But another George and Martha, (and what Martha brings to my mind) is Elizabeth Taylor as Martha and Richard Burton as George in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Great movie.
