Personal experiences with the name Justice: | Edit

My name is Justice and I'm 19. I work with the public, so a lot of people are often very interested in my name and where it came from. In my case it was from an ancestor (a great grandfather) named Justus. I have had a few people put their nose up at it and say "Oh, THAT'S different.." but I don't really care whether they like it. I love it because it's different. I have never met another girl named Justice, so as a name it's somewhat rare. I have met a few younger boys named Justice, so it's good to see its getting more popular. I feel like it's sophisticated and has a great meaning - "fair." If you want something that not many other people have, Justice is a great option!
