Name Meaning

English: nickname for a fair-minded man, from Middle English, Old French justice ‘justice’, ‘equity’, Latin iustitia, a derivative of iustus ( see Just ). It may also have been an occupational name for a judge, since this metonymic use of the word is attested from as early as the 12th century.
