@kala_way - It does feel like it has another level, doesn't it? Especially as Juno is quite a well-known goddess, and it might be too much for a little girl to carry...Juneau just seems softer. Thank you!
@catheyc - Haha, this post made me chuckle! I totally understand what you mean, but having never seen the film, the goddess is what immediately comes to mind, which is quite a large namesake for a little girl...so like you, I would probably prefer to see Juneau. Thank you!
@isabellemarie - It seems quite a few people think of the film as well - I have never seen it! Is it really famous? I'll have to Google that later... Thank you!
@argenta_genova - Ooh, I love it when that happens! I totally agree, the -o ending is very misleading and the -eau softens it a bit. And it's lovely when place names have a special significance to the parents - it just adds a depth to the place name, I think. Thank you!

@nat108 - Ooh, no I had never heard of Junot before...I really like that actually, because I always think Juno sound quite masculine! Might have to go on a list somewhere... Thank you!
@mclola - That's a really sweet idea! Haha, I do see how it sounds a bit like that...but I love the significance Mckinley has for you. Thank you!
