    justin for judge or justice?

    Does "Justin" have the meaning of "judge" or "justice"?
    Someone has a name which has a meaning related to "constitution" in Korea, and I'd like to make a nice English name for him.

    No. Most names have no obvious meaning in English. Many names are descended from words in European, Middle Eastern, or African languages, but people typically don't know what they mean.

    I assume most people know the meaning of their own name, though.
