I am looking for the etymology for the name Javert, originally used in VictorHugo's novel, Les Miserables. I am certain that he must have derived the name from somewhere, and that it's meaning has some significance to the character. However, as of yet, I have seen no viable explanations. Incidentally, mys son is named after the character and I am curious of it's origins.
