Gender: Male Origin of Jupiter: Roman mythology name

The name Jupiter is a boy's name . Jupiter and is often added to lists like Middle Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "Rank These Names! (themed)".

From the experts:

Jupiter's partner Juno has entered the mainstream, so it's possible that her divine mate could follow. The name of the supreme Roman deity and the largest planet has until recently had either too hippie or too grandiose a feel for most mortals, but with the rise of sound-alike Juniper and space names such as Orion and Mars, Jupiter may find new favor.

Short form Jupe is adorable.
