Gender: M Origin of Justice: Word name Justice's Popularity in 2016: #501

Justice, one of the rare virtue names for boys, entered the popularity ranks in 1992, and has remained on the list ever since. Parents' search for names implying virtue has led to a mini-revival of this long-neglected name in both its German homonymic form, Justus, and as the word itself. Steven Seagal was ahead of the curve when he used it back in 1976.

With the Justus spelling, it was the name of several saints and noted scholars and scientists.

A caveat, though: Justice is now being used for girls even more than for boys, and once things start to tilt in that direction, they rarely turn back around.
