I once knew a girl named June who was born in August! How absurd. I think it's a sweet name, even if there are lots of middle-aged Junes out there. Junebug is an adorable nickname.

Like this name, but I won't use it when your child is born in winter.

I have a friend by the name of "Jun". Except that he is a boy. I think it is a good name for a boy. Jun's full name would be "Jun-Hyeok" but no one ever calls him that. (Too hard to pronounce for some.) Some have led to calling him Jun-Hawk for fun!

Just beautiful! I have no words to express how sweet this name sounds to me. And it's a beautiful month, which seems pretty amazing to me. And June Carter - 5 stars!

I love the name. I don't know why it's not more popular. I prefer it as a middle name.

Although I do like this name it's not something I would use as a main name as it has always reminded me of a middle aged woman (my mother-in-law!) I would use it as a middle name though, or Juni. That's cute.
My mother-in-law was born on 30th June so she only just made it lol, but people who named their children, born in winter, June, what were you doing? Do you realize how much hassle they will get for that from spiteful children.

My middle name is June, almost had it as first name. I think it's quite a sweet name if not slightly old fashioned.
-- mariej  4/17/2008
I love this name so much! Whenever I hear it I feel as if it is bursting to life, like it's full of so much sweet energy. And the nickname Junie is darling.

Twin sisters Jennifer and June Gibbons are born in England. The two would gain renown while growing up for their unwillingness to talk to anyone but each other and would develop one of the most severe cases of a unique twin language in medical annals (a book on the pair called The Silent Twins was written in 1986). Both would serve 11 years in prison as adults and Jennifer would die of mysterious causes on June 9, 1993.

I like this name. I like the way it looks and the way it sounds, so soft and pleasantly short. And even though you may get teased and called "June Bug," be the best June bug you can because it is a lovely name.

I love the name June for a first name or middle. It is sweet, yet strong, and beautiful. Without trying too hard. As a first name it is so refreshing among the seas of Avas, Olivias, Madisons, Emmas, and armies of girls named Emily. I do not think you have to be born in June to be named it. I think if anything that makes it a bit cliche and corny.

June is also a medieval Basque name (with no particular meaning), though nowadays is in the Basque top ten!

June Mathis (1889-1927) was a very important woman in early Hollywood. She wrote the screenplays for numerous films in the Teens and Twenties (becoming the head of Metro's film department after only one year), was the first female MGM executive, and eventually became Hollywood's highest-paid executive. She was also the one who discovered Rudolph Valentino, after being very impressed by his ten-minute part in the 1919 film 'Eyes of Youth.' She took a chance on this relative unknown and convinced the powers that be to cast him as the lead role in the upcoming film 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' (1921), which was one of her most successful screenplays and one of the most successful films in American history as well. I've always found it very touching how she was like a mother hen to him, mentoring him every step of the way, through his whole time at Metro, and even after he moved on to another studio. She was also generous enough to give him a spot in her own family's crypt at Hollywood Forever Cemetery because his finances weren't enough at the time of his death to pay for a grave.

I like this name. It ages well and it sounds substantial without being too short. However, I wouldn't use it on my child because it's rather middle-aged. Even worse, it makes me think of June Cleaver from that sexist fifties show Leave it to Beaver.
-- bananarama  9/22/2009
June is so beautiful, I would use this name for a middle name because I like princess-like names for first names and June is more of a sweet name. It's also one of the names you look at and now will become popular like Aurora, Winter, and the other ones.

I really love the name June. It's a little too common for me, but it is the cutest and sweetest name I have ever heard. It is the best month name. I can't say one bad thing about this name.
-- Alora  1/2/2010
'The Roman poet Ovid provides two etymologies for June's name in his poem concerning the months entitled the "Fasti". The first is that the month is named after the Roman goddess Juno, whilst the second is that the name comes from the Latin word iuniores, meaning "younger ones," as opposed to maiores ("elders") for which the preceding month May is named (Fasti VI.1-88).' From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June

Therefore, the name might be related to the English word "junior".

June is near the top of my list of favorites. I can't grasp the logic of only giving it to children born in the month of June. People name their daughters Rose because they love roses, Grace because they value that virtue, or Savannah because they love the image that landscape brings to mind. Why shouldn't we use June because we love that time of year?
-- Melissa_77  4/21/2010
This is SUCH a cute name!
-- Chrila96  11/2/2010
I don't feel that the name June should be restricted to those females born in the month. Firstly, to people objecting to Junes 'born in winter' - June IS winter for half of the planet. You may wish to articulate your argument a little better.
Secondly, June is a name in its own right.

I have had many happy memories take place in June (in both hemispheres!) and love the sound and grace of the name, and would gladly bestow it upon a daughter born anytime, just as I would Rose to a child born even on the darkest day of the year.

It seems that nobody has mentioned June Allyson (Ella Geisman, 7 October 1917-8 July 2006), famous actress of the 1940s.

Well, I was born in June, but I don't really think I'd name my daughter this...
-- blondieboo629  8/3/2011
My Grandma's name is June, because she was born on the 1st of June. I like the name but it seems kind of old fashioned.
My friend is called June-Lily which I like but I think would be better as Lily-June. Though both her grandmas are called June and she was born in June so I guess it fits.

Great, I'm named in honor of the goddess I most hate -.-

Of all the possible calendar-month names to devise... "June" is certainly the least wincing, by a hair.

Even though my love is generally largely reserved for antiqued, old-fashioned names, I cannot bring myself to entirely outwardly accept the usage of this particular name-theme.

That being said... I have always been a fan of the television show "Leave It To Beaver." The mother's name is June Cleaver (played by Barbara Billingsley.)

I love this name! I plan to name one of my characters name June Celeste. I think it has a nice ring to it.

American actor Balthazar Getty and his wife Rosetta have a daughter named June Catherine (born 2007). June has 3 siblings: Cassius, Grace, and Violet.

I think this should also be listed as masculine. I had a grandmother named June, but I also had two uncles and a step-grandfather named it, plus an old family friend of ours is an elderly man named June. I did some research and it has always been in use for males, just not as popular as with females.

I've known a few male "June"s as well as girls.

I think this is a great name. I always remember Juno when I read this, so I don't associate it with the month of June. Also, it's so cute and fairy-like! I think it can be a name in its own right, but I like it on the combo Flora June :)

"Mama" June Shannon is the mother of Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson - a connection that really downgraded my impression of this name.
