    It also just occurred to me that nicknames might be troublesome

    Jupe? Peter? Ugh.

    I like the idea of "Zeus" as nn, though, esp since Jupiter comes from the greek Zeu Pater (Zeus, the father)


    I really don;t think it works as a girl name at all, though, sorry @ sabrinafair

    I think I could like Jupiter as a name, but I do think it works better as a MN. I've known several females named Juniper, and this has a very similar sound quality, so it almost feels feminine to me. But, nonetheless, I do think Jupiter could definitely grow on me as a boy's name, and though I would never name a kid this myself, if I met a Jupiter in real life I would probably think "awesome!"

    Not a fan of it personally. Mostly because it doesn't really sound like a name to me. I have a hard time seeing it on a person. Plus, "boys go to Jupiter to get more stupid-er." Tell me I'm not the only one who remembers this ;-) I think it would be fine as a middle name though.

    I was actually going to say the same thing as javad regarding Juniper and Jupiter. Anyways, I think it's pretty cool! I'd still keep it as a mn, though.
