Personal experiences with the name Justin: | Edit

A really good friend of mine's name is Justin. I know that it is a very popular name for men, but the funny thing is, I've only met one before. And that's him. Seriously, I have no reason to lie. So, in a way, it's like it's kind of special to me. (Besides celebrities, you know. I've heard of many of those.) But yeah, he's a super great guy. He's a real ladies' man, and he's extremely hilarious. x) I love him so much. He's awesome. His name is really handsome, too. <3 <3 <3 =)

I named my son Justin because it means just, noble, righteous. The exact qualities I hope to see in him as a young man some day. I also think it's sporty and handsome.

I named my boy/girl twins Justin Eric and Erin Justine

My husband's name is Justin Wade; he was born in 1987. My name is Meghan Elizabeth. I think our names go well together! Our daughter's name is Emica Justine.
