Reputation /rɛpjʊˈteɪʃ(ə)n/

1. The general estimation in which a person is held by the public

2. The state or situation of being held in high esteem

3. A specific characteristic or trait ascribed to a person or thing

Origin of the word comes from Latin Reputare = Think Over

Think over.  So why does reputation feels more like a judgement?
