The chances that a boy is name Juno is very rare though...

This name sounds masculine to me, I can't imagine it on a girl, only on a boy.

It's pretty, but I dislike the association with the movie and the goddess Hera, who is known for being jealous and petty. It sounds very feminine to me, I don't know why boys have this name.

Kayisforkeen, boys don’t have this name. I checked the usage! And even if they did, it wouldn’t sound too feminine! After all, Juna is 100% feminine to me! But I understand that not all names ending with “o” are masculine, just like how not all names ending with “a” or “ah” are feminine. Joshua is not feminine, it’s masculine.

Hey, nice to see other trans folks and The Penumbra Podcast fans checking out this name! I was always pretty meh about the goddess Juno, and I still haven't watched the movie but Juno Steel is really important to me! There's also a Sheriff Juno in The Adventure Zone: Amnesty, and that was like, deal SEALED. Plus, possible nicknames for this name are wonderful to think about. June, Junie, Junebug (I'm a big TAZ fan, okay) the possibilities are endless (probably not). Anyway, good name I might take it. I like that it could be masculine or feminine, with a more feminine connotation and a strong personal association with a genderqueer character.

I am male and this is my name. I do get teased about the goddess thing but I either ignore it or tell them "Look, your name is [person's name] but you are not [famous person with the same name].

People need to educate themselves, that's what they need to do. Juno is the name of a roman goddess, used in literature and astronomy (asteroid, spacecraft).

If one's sole impression is "I hate the movie so now I hate the name" then one may consider picking up a book once in a while.

I love the movie! Honestly and it's good because then your teenage daughter will feel more pressure of not doing it because people will connect her to the awesome movie. And I would be lucky if my daughter turned out like Juno McGuff, The reason why is she's not like other girls now who got pregnant to get attention or tie down a man. It was by accident plus she has confidence in herself that most teenagers don't have. And the girl knows how to handle her problems and be independent which I love so that's why I'm naming my daughter after the movie Juno.

I always like this name, but the movie kind of ruined it.

Also, in the movie True Lies, the bad chick's name is Juno.

I love this name, it is spunky. The film association is not a good thing for me, not that I have a problem with the content.

I think Juno is a gorgeous sounding, unusual name. I love Roman names, and this is no exception.

The Latin pronunciation is nice, but the English version is just not. Also, I don't think of it as a proper name.

I am very fond of the movie Juno, and this is the only girl name I like that ends in O. It is cute, but I like June better.

I love this name! It's one of my absolute favourites. Juno sounds so pretty and interesting. I like girl's names that end in "o" - they sound different. I'd love to use this name for my own daughter someday. And, I won't have to worry about associations with they movie, because by the time I'd ever have kids it would be completely forgotten about, ha ha.

I think this is really pretty and majestic sounding. I also love the name Pandora. These are both really cool mythology names. It's pretty much names I like but I could never use for a child because it's too unusual. I would also not use this for a child because of the film Juno, it would cause a lot of teasing. Plus then what if she got pregnant to fit her name?

The name is lovely, it’s the Roman name of my most favorite Greek goddess, Hera. Queen of the Heavens, Goddess of Marriage. I’d be honored to be named after a goddess.

This name is ugly. It's also become associated with a movie about teen pregnancy.

I've always seen this as a masculine name. As a child, I had a parrot that said, "You know who!" (this was all he said for many years), but it came out, "Junohoo!" Thus, Juno became his name.

At first, I thought this name was really weird when I heard it from the movie Juno. But once I thought about it more, I learned to love it. Of course, I will never name my child that because she'll be known as the girl named after the pregnant teenager, but I do love it.

For a very long time, I though this was a masculine name because of the 'o' ending. It sounds a bit like a name parents would choose to make their daughter sound all edgy and hip, and that's why it would sound a bit strange on feminine, typically average girls and women, and on women past the age of 35.

There is a movie called Juno about a girl named Juno who gets pregnant before she is even married or an adult (I think) so I am mad because I HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS and I hate this name now. Thanks a lot, movie producers.

I love this name. It flows beautifully. This is the name of a character in a story I'm writing. I think it's great name for her because it sounds very other-worldly and magestic.

I love this name. I seem to remember reading somewhere that it is also used in Ireland, as some sort of variant of Una/Oonagh, although I don't know how true that is.
