Is the Christian martyr the one who shed his blood willingly in the name of Christ and because of his/her faith, or unwillingly?

We can use the example of the martyred children of Bethlehem. Their innocent lives were required for Christ's sake, and thus, He rewarded them and counted them amongst His martyrs.
