Justin Origin and Meaning

The name Justin is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "fair, righteous".

Justin has been widely popular since the 1980s, when parents were seeking a fresher 'J' boys’ name to replace Jason, Jeremy and Jonathan. It's been dipping in popularity a bit in recent years but it reached as high as Number 9 in 1990. At this point it's Justin that is suffering from overexposure.

Justin stems from the Latin word meaning 'upright' and 'righteous.' Saint Justin was the first great Christian philosopher, thereby becoming the patron saint of philosophers.

Current popularity is boosted by heartthrobs Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber.

Raincove Says:


I think of Justin Roiland the guy who voiced Lemongrab, and also co-creator of Rick and Morty and voice actor of Rick and Morty. And Justin Bieber

TechnoKitten Says:


Justin reminds me more of Justin Timberlake than Justin Bieber

euphemiadwarlock9 Says:


This name has really grown on me. I love the meaning of this name. It's so positive. Justin Timberlake is a good a reference. He's a talented actor and singer, and he's also vegetarian right?
Plus this name has quite a long history and I love history!

Hailey Says:


I honestly had no idea this name had as much history as it does. I'm really shocked to read that it's a saint's name because, like others, it sounds so "fresh" and young.

Michaela Says:


Hilariously, I always forget Justin is tied to Justin Bieber and Timberlake. Whenever I see Justin I think "Oh! I haven't seen that name in a while..!"

Clarissa. Says:


Yeah, if you imagen a 90 year old grandpa it doesn't sound perfect. The name sounds really fresh. But nice to hear that you like the name too =).

Guest Says:


I've always felt it's a "young" name. I was shocked that it's Sean Penn's middle name because I'm like "he's in his 50s! that name sounds so current" but yeah I've always liked the name. Justice as well (both genders).

Clarissa. Says:


Why did no one started a conversation about the name "Justin" ? I think everbody know Justin Bieber; but I got obsessed with this name by a fiction character at my favorite book. I know that Justin is a outworn name, but it still sound amazing for me. What do you think about the name? =)
