"I?m one of the 1988 year of the Justine?s, and I honestly can?t get over how relatable these comments are! I?ve only ever met two other girls called Justine, and it?s like we all have an immediate connection because no one gets our names right, and only ?Justine?s? get it! I used to correct people calling me anything that ends with an ?ine? but after 32 years I can?t be bothered and just let them call me whatever. How many of you say your name over the phone ?Justin with an e at the end?? Some Uber drivers sometimes think they are picking up a guy, and I land up arguing that the ?e? at the end is not silent. I?d love to know why your parents gave you the name - my mother said she got it from a TV series called ?The Thorn Birds?, and my father decided it was perfect because I was an emergency and was born ?just in time?!"

"I have a best friend named Justine and MY name is Christine. It rhymes!! The horrible thing was that I knew a boy named Christopher and he would call me Pisstine because he hated how similiar my name was and it p*ssed him off. And then he'd call Justine F**kstine. And we're so glad he isn't there to bully us." Jul. 7, 2009:

"It can be frustrating because everyone pronounces it wrong, but it's a beautiful name. Also the connotation of the marquis de sade is not always flattering but in France it's sometimes seen as almost revolutionary. His work was all political you know" Feb. 19, 2006:

"All through my life I?ve been called Justin. Teachers at school calling attendance, name being spelled wrong on work emails.. Most notably called Justin by the priest at my wedding. I?ve considered a name change in passing lol, but I?ve made it this far I think I?ll just keep it." Jan. 6, 2020:

"People never see the e at the end of justine i guess..? Because i always get called justin.. Lol" Oct. 4, 2016:
"My name is Justine, and as a kid I didnt like it, but I am in my 40's and I love it. My husband calls me Juz, or Juzzie of which my mother got really upset with as she said my name is beautiful and should not be a nickname. Alot of people forget to put an E on the end, and that ticks me off, as it does with every other Justine story that Ive read! There is a famous footballer in Australia called Justin Hodges, and my last name is also Hodges. He is Aboriginal and Im as white as a Ghost! People ask if we are brother and sister. REALLY? What mother would name her son Justin, and her daughter Justine? But you have to laugh I guess." Jul. 11, 2016:
"My name is Justine and I really like it! I think it's original and rare name. I'm glad to be the only one Justine in my class because I know many people who has popular names so they are one of the four kids in class by the same name." Dec. 10, 2015:
"My name is Justine. I love it. I've only met 3 other Justines in my life, and I'm 40. I really don't get how so many other 'ine' names are more popular :Christine, Janine, Josephine, even Geraldine. They're so boring. Justine is beautiful, almost mysterious, and yet so uncommon but still breaks through into popular culture now and again via music, literature, etc lending to the names' sexy noir kinda feel. Sure, I get called Justin, but that's ok, I can correct people." May. 15, 2014:
"My name's Justine and sometimes I feel like my name is so awkward sounding and I have been called justin, justice... And alot of people I know can't pronounce it a d I just tell them to call me Jessi, Jessie.. Or however u wanna spell it" Jul. 22, 2013:
"My name is Justin Michele and yes I am girl no my name is not Justine when I tell someone my name I say justin like a boy I love my name I think I might be the only female on earth with the name Justin like a boy how cool is that I am proud to not be a justine" Jan. 4, 2013:
"My name is Christine and one of my friend's name is Justine. Anyways, everyone says my name correctly, but sometimes they say my name to Justine. It gets so confusing sometimes. Once a boy called me her name. Boy, oh boy was I ever mad. Because I was at that school since kindergarten and she was at that school since grade 5. But it really is a nice name. The only problem is that it rhymes with my name." May. 23, 2009:
"I think Justine is a very classy name. Unfortunately, there are people that might not articulate it well and just call a girl "Justin" or misread it. My other concern with the name are two major literary connections: The Marquis de Sade's book of the same title and Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." De Sade's Justine is a regularly exploited victim because she can't recognize vice and Justine Moritz of Shelley's book is a victim of a botched justice and is executed despite her innocence. I think Justine is a beautiful name, but I don't like its association to the concept of person that is a constant victim." Dec. 3, 2008:
"My name's Justine. Sometimes i like it; it's not very common, it's nice to be the only Justine in a group of friends - whereas often people say a name and have to add their surname on the end just to make it clear who they're talkin bout.
but up until like, last year, i had people who had met me for the first time calling me Justin. For god sake, i'm 17, that's a pretty lengthy amount of time for people to learn how to pronounce your name" Feb. 1, 2008:
"My second name is Justine and i love it!!! I am the only one in my whole school with the name Justine. I do like it better as my second name than my first!!(my first name is Chelsea)!!!" Apr. 14, 2007:
"I named my daughter Justine...we love it! It's a beautiful feminine name, classic while still unique." Dec. 23, 2006:
"My name is Justine, often mispronounced JUSTIN far too many times. I do know a few other Justines. Proper way to pronounce it is: Just-tine. Pronouncing the "tine" part like the name chrisTINE." May. 16, 2006:
