From the Nov. 1991 LoAR:
Just Rick. Name change from Gaiseric Allison and device. Per bend
sinister vert and Or, a bend sinister argent between a garb Or and a
raven contourny sable.
Lord Dragon has found evidence from period for the given name
Justus and Juste, as well as Ricke as a surname, so this name can be
justified as a perfectly legitimate construction.
R&W, s.n. Martin, lists <Walter, Helewis Martin> 1166. "MedLat
Martinus, a diminutive of Martius, from Mars god of war. A very
popular christian name and an early surname."
