Gender: F Origin of June: Latin, month named for goddess Juno June's Popularity in 2013: #364

June, a sweetly old-fashioned month name that was long locked in a time capsule with June (born Ella) Allyson and June Cleaver, may not be exactly busting out all over, but is definitely showing signs of regeneration, especially as a new hipster favorite middle name.

June was a Top 100 name from 1915 to 1941, peaking in 1925 at Number 39. Then, after a quarter-century hiatus, June returned in 2008 and now resides at Number 364.

Balthazar Getty has a daughter named June and Amanda Peet used it as her daughter Molly's middle name.

Juni is the Scandinavian version; other related choices are Junia, Juno, Juna and Djuna.
