Name Meaning

English (Warwickshire): from the personal name Justinus, which can represent either a Latinization of the Old Norse personal name Iósteinn, which is found in the Domesday Book (1086) as Justen, Justan, and Justinus, or a derivative of Latin justus ‘just, upright’ (see 2 below). The association of the name with clericus and the existence of the female name Justina, which must be associated with the patron saint of Padua, suggest that the Latin name Justinus was also in occasional use in England.

French, Slovenian, German, West Indian (mainly Haiti), and African (e.g. Nigeria): from the personal name Justin, Latin Justinus, a derivative of Justus (from justus ‘just, upright’; see Just ). This name was borne by various early Christian saints, including a 3rd-century Parisian martyr and the first archbishop of Tarbes.
