Martina is a very common name in Czech and Slovak republics. It had become popular via Martina Navratilova. I didn't like it when I was a child, I wanted a more common old fashioned name like Zuzana (Susan) or Tereza (Therese) etc but as an adult I appreciate it more as it is quite rare where I live now. Also I like how it is pronounced in English as opposed to Czech. I used to work for a lady who would call me Martine which is the French version. My parents would use a nickname Tina or Tinka derived from Martina, Martinka.

I know an adorable little girl named Martina nickname Marta. Meeting her totally changed my perception of this name. It's a fun and spunky choice that makes a nice alternative to the increasingly trendy Matilda or the horrendously overused Madeline/Maddison names. It's familiar and easy to spell, yet not a predictable choice.

It's different yet beautiful. I like "Marti" as a nickname.

Even though this name is basically just Martin with an 'a' added to it, it sounds feminine and pretty cool. After all, the stress is on the second syllable.

A cute nickname for this (in my opinion) would be Marty. To me, that sounds like a fun-loving, outgoing tomboy.

My mother's name is Martina, but everyone calls het Tina. Problem is I know a Tina, and really don't like her. So I call my mother Martina. It's an okay name, shame it's just another derived from male-name.

My aunt's name - named for her father, Martin. I think it's quite a girly name. It's nice but don't like the short form, Tina.

My name is Martina, and as I child I used to hate it. I wished my name was Katie or Lauren. Now I realize that it allows me to stick out in a crowd.

In Bulgaria "Martina" is connected with the Bulgarian word "mart", which means "March". In this country "Martina" is thought as a derivative of "Marta". In Bulgaria "Marta", "Martin" (the stress is on the "i"), Martina have a nameday on 1st March - the day of "baba Marta" ("grandma Marta"), who ties "martenichki" (or "martenitzi") (bracelets made of 2 interwoven threads - white and red) to children's wrists with a wish children to be healthy the whole year. The "Martenichka" (or the "martenitza") could be also a combination of 2 pieces of wool - white and red - resembling triangles - which are tied by a string made of a white and a red thread, the most beautiful of this type are the combination of a boy and a girl called respectively "Piju" [pronounced (piju), not (pidju)] and "Penda". Bulgarians tie each other with "martenichki" bracelets or adorn one another with the 2nd type of the "martenichki" for health. In Bulgaria the 1st March is thought as the beginning of spring - waking up of nature, a new beginning.
