Sounds friendly and warm! I love and hate the month June. Lovely weather and school holidays but insects and literally being fried alive. Very fun-not!  4/15/2021
Sweet. I love it as a middle name, but it's nice as a first name too.

June is my first name, given to me by my dad. I got the name from my great-grandmother. I never liked the name growing up. Since I'm from Norway people would always pronounce it like "juu-neh" and not "joon\". Now I generally go by June instead of my other first name (or is it middle name?) because my other first name is very, very feminine. June feels more neutral to me. The name is important to me, since it was my great-grandmother's name. I don't have much connection to that side of the family (since my grandfather and my great-grandmother moved from Scotland to Norway) so my name feels like that little connection.

Love this name! It's short, strong, elegant, and easy to pronounce all at the same time. I would definitely consider it.

Beautiful. It reminds me of summer. For that reason, I think June Story/Story June would be a nice combination. Or even Summer June.

I can understand why people are so divided over this one. I've always had a bad impression of this name thanks to Mama June from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but since watching The Handmaid's Tale, where the main character's name is June, I've had a completely different impression of it. Now it reminds me of hope and strength of character, and I actually really love it.

June is a pretty name. I know this is the name of Mama Shannon, which could give off a trashy vibe to some, I always think of June Lapine now, aka Shoe0nHead, who is a really good anti-SJW commentator. So yeah, this is a pretty name.

I love the name June. It's really beautiful. My little sister was born in June and my parents could have called her this, only they settled with Julia, which is pretty too. We call my sister Juju or Jujubug or sometimes Junebug or Jay. Junebug could also be a nickname for June. Combinations with June that I like are:
• Rosetta June
• Elizabeth June
• June Princess
• Ayesha (Eye-sha) June
• June Eleanor.

As a male name from the 1800s through the 1930s, probably from a nickname for Junius.

I'm named June Monique, & I love that my name isn't commonly used in the US, though I have a niece who is using it as her middle name. (she's 3 years old). Still pretty rare to hear someone called June in the States. Of course, I was born in the month of June. My nicknames include Junie, Junie Jr., Junebug, JB and Juniper. I also had an aunt by marriage named June Marie.

My name is April and I was born in June. My brother is named June and was born in September. We were NEVER made fun of or anything. People assumed we were born in our respective months and were merely surprised to learn that was not the case. People also think it's cute that my brother and I are April and June. The one thing we do get A LOT is "so where's May?". Sorry there is no "May". You Wanna talk old fashioned? There's one!

This name is actually unisex. It is the sixth month of the year, and the first month of summer.

My middle name is June, and I've always liked it. I was named for my paternal grandmother, whose middle name was also June. I use my first name, but my grandmother always used her middle name because she didn't much care for her first name. Her mother's middle name was May. I guess it made more sense to give me June as a middle name instead of skipping down a month to July, which would probably have been turned into Julie. It would have worked but would not have sounded as smooth, in my opinion. When my friends in college started calling me June Bugz, or Bugz for short, my dad told me my grandmother's friends called her June Bug. I like that.

I was never teased for having the name June, perhaps because I always went by my first name. I had more trouble explaining to people that it was not "Jane," which they seemed to automatically hear when I spoke my full name. I was born in April, but one meaning I found for June is "born in the fourth month," because June was at one time the fourth month in the calendar. Interesting, since April is now the fourth month in the calendar, but I think I prefer the meaning "young."

The name "JUNE" was given to me by my father. It was a name already being used in the family by my father's late half sister June Chatfield Philler.
I had always in my youth associated my name with "old-vintage" words in mind, not embracing it, top that off with the fact that I was the only person in the whole entire school with that name. It wasn't until high school graduation that I discovered someone else shared the name but as her middle name "Jennifer June March".

I love the name today and am proud that it is a family name given to me by my father.
Kristfield  6/26/2015
My daughter's middle name is June. She was born in October but it just fits so well with her first name Alyce. And I actually did not name her after the month but as a shortened version of junior. Had she been a boy then she would have been a junior.

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.

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 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.

Chrila96  11/2/2010
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?

'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

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

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.
italiannames  10/18/2009
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.

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 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.

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.

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.
