St. Martin of Tours (c.315AD – c.402AD) was a Roman soldier who became a follower of Jesus despite his ethnicity and social standing. He was known for generous acts to poor people while a soldier and eventually became a Christian monk and then a bishop of Tours, France. He lived an ascetic, humble life, championing the cause of the poor and destitute. Martin Luther was named after him as he was born on St. Martin of Tours’ birthday.
