June Names

June Names

June marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, so any of the sunny, summer names would be fitting for a June baby. Names related to June’s birthstones, pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone, are bountiful. Likewise, names inspired by rose and honeysuckle, June’s birth flowers, are apt for a baby born in June.

Along with Pearl and June itself, other June names for girls in the US Top 1000 include Greta, Margot, Olive, and Summer. June names for boys in the US Top 1000 include Alexander, Diego, Harvey, and Rome. One-of-a-kind June names for your baby include Helmi, Jarah, Nuray, and Rosamel.

Names for June babies may also connect to famous people born in June or historical events that took place during the month. Father’s Day is celebrated in June in the United States, so names that mean father, like Abigail and Axel, make good options for a June baby.

You can also connect your June baby's name to their star sign, with Gemini names or Cancer baby names. These names are worth a thought if you are having a June baby.
