    I pronounce it "Doon", which rhymes with June.

    I don't consider Dune to be a person name but a mound of sand. Dunes are common around here so that's automatically what I think of. I'd never consider it because of this (there are other reasons too) but it would work better as a first name than as a middle name.

    Have you considered Rune?

    I think it has a really odd sound that I'm not used to hearing in a name. I'd double guess hearing it as "doom" or "dunce." There are better sounding names out there...

    I think it would make a quirky middle, no different from using River. And with June rising in popularity as a middle for girls, I don't think it's that far of a stretch to consider Dune for a boy.

    As much as I love nature names, Dune is not an attractive sound. I just don't care for it as a new

    Have you considered Dunedin? Probably wouldn't go over well in Scotland but it's a very beachy name here in Florida

    I just think, 'Arrakis, Dune, home of the spice.' But that's just a sci-fi nerd thing, and even then most people who like that stuff would probably think it was cool. Other than that, I don't mind it.
