Meaning of Justin

Meaning of name Justin:

Justin comes from the Latin word “Justino”, which literally means “only” (from “iustus” - “upright, equitable”). The Indo-European vocabulary word (*yewes-) means “law” in the sense of a body of laws rather than specific civil laws (which had more to do with a “sacred formula” in a pre-Christian sense). Post-Christianity, the word "only" conveyed a more religious definition - that is, "right in God's eyes." The names of Justin and Justus were borne by a couple of early saints who ensured the name's popularity and endurance through the Middle Ages, when their cults spread. Saint Justin Martyr lived in the 2nd century born to pagans in Palestine. He was a seeker of truth through reason; until he met an old man on the seashore who told him about Christianity (some believe this mysterious old man to have been a vision of Jesus himself). Justin was converted and was about to travel to Rome to spread the good word. He was arrested during the persecutions of Marcus Aurelius and beheaded for his beliefs in the year 165. The other popular neighborhood of Saint Justin was a young boy who lived in 3rd century Gaul (present-day France) also during a time of Christian persecution. Roman. He was detained by soldiers after being reported as a "Christian magician" and, after confessing that he was in fact a Christian (but perhaps not a magician), was immediately beheaded. During the Middle Ages, Christianized Europeans latched onto these kinds of holy legends (and medieval babies were easily named after saints). The so-called "cephalophore saints" (ie, head-bearing saints) were especially venerated (although we might consider that a bit rare nowadays). Justin's name was resurrected in the latter half of the 20th century and has become a favorite today. head-bearing saints) were particularly revered (although we might consider that a bit odd today).
