7 / 7
France didn't escape the Diocletian persecutions, and in 287, a 9-year-old French boy, Justus of Beauvais, was beheaded on the spot when he confessed to being a Christian. According to legend, he immediately stood back up with his head in his hands, causing the soldiers to run off. A different take on the name Justin -- both meaning "just" or "fair" -- this a perfect choice for a boy who will stand up for what is right.
