 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."
