The month itself has some serious mythological ties, having been named for the goddess of marriage.  Here are some of the best names connected to the month of June . One of them may even be perfect for your own little Junebug.

AudieAudie Leon Murphy was the most honored American military hero of World War II, awarded a total of 37 medals and decorations, including the Medal of Honor for his singlehanded attempt to hold off an infantry company of Germans for an hour in France in 1945. Today, Audie is more commonly used as a nickname for the girls name Audrey– that popular choice which is reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour was Number 32 for girls last year.
