June Origin and Meaning

The name June is a girl's name of Latin origin.

June, a sweetly old-fashioned month name that was long locked in a time capsule with June Allyson (born Ella) 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. It fell off the U.S. Top 1000 in 1987 and returned in 2008 after a two-decade hiatus. Now, we'd call it one of the vintage girls' names starting with Jdue for a comeback.

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.

Why not? Is every Natalie born on Christmas day or every Anastasia on Easter? It would work perfectly

madehatter Says:


People name their kids April when they aren't born in April so I don't see why not. Plus, June is just name that was put in place by Romans to honor the queen of gods, Juno.
