The most famous theory is that it originated or evolved from a drink called the Martinez which is a popular drink back in the 1860s and was served at a hotel in San Francisco.

This drink is said to have been named after the town nearby which is Martinez, California. The town’s people claimed that a local bartender invented the drink, hence it was named Martinez. Over the years, there had been many drinks similar to the modern-day version of Martini but the very first documented dry martini was linked to a bartender in New York back in 1911.
