    Hi Simon, the word has the same meaning in English as far as I know.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello- I would suspect that 'Martian' in Spanish would be something to do with war or fighting- Mars the Roman god of war-the English word 'martial'=military, also marshal as in a commander.

    Sorry for my horrible english.The correct name of the manufacturer is, Martin Bascaran.So i supose he took five letters of the name(Marti) and the two last letters of the surname(an).MARTIAN.Itīs tipical in some spanish enterprises.The word "martian" is no meaning in spanish.the translation is "marciano" , (inhabitant of mars).
