My main current association is with the novelist Martina Cole. Martina and Martine are both quite attractive, and neither have ever been super popular - or, at least, not here in the UK - but we all recognise the names. I don't like that all the names based upon Mark, Martin, etc have meanings connected to war, but they're still nice.
