From the experts:

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.

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.
