    I also strongly prefer Justine - which I do really like. Justina just doesn't quite do it for me. This probably makes no sense, but to me, for some reason Justine sounds like a true name, whereas Justina just sounds like Justin with an A tacked on the end. I think Lucia and Justine would make great sibling names!

    This wouldn't bother me personally, as I don't think the average person would be aware of the reference, but there was a Marquis de Sade novel called Justine, for what it's worth.

    I think Justina is nice and underused. I think it goes much better with Lucia than Justine would.

    I think Justina is beautiful! It works very well with Lucia (which is also wonderful).
    My best friend's name is Justine and we call her Justy for her nn.

    I'm not a fan. We're expecting our third girl; my husband is Justin, and I considered a feminine version of his name as the baby's middle name. I immediately disliked Justina. It truly seems like Justin + a to me. I prefer Justine.

    It's not my style anyway, but I agree that Justine is much better, and Justina sounds a little made up.
