A Decision Has Been Made: 50 Names That Mean Judge (2023)

We all fear judgment; being judged for how we look, act or dress gives us anxiety even when we know it’s unlikely other people are focused on us.

However, judgment isn’t necessarily negative. We can be judged to be a good person, we have the power if we are the judge, and by having someone pass judgment we can be vindicated or proclaimed blameless.

Many of the names on this list imply that only God is the judge, and he has a good opinion of us. As you might expect, they originate from Hebrew or Biblical characters like Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob whose twelve sons became the pillars of Israel.

The name Dinah has been used often in older English societies and taken to mean ‘vindicated’ or ‘blameless’. Dana is a nice variant of this if you’d like a more modern name.

Names like this don’t only come from the Bible. For example, Joaquin, a Spanish name meaning ‘God will judge’ is gaining popularity and is shared with celebrities like Joaquin Phoenix, who played the Joker.

Reginald, a Latin name, means ‘powerful judgment’. Its root is also found in names like Regina, usually used as one of the names for royalty, the highest judges in a country. Instead of being judged, the focus here is on being the one who dishes out the judgment, a great position of power.
