Ok I'm a bit greedy starting another thread. But of these two which would you pick? I know they are both a bit marmite! I don't mind the fruit association or the movie association.

Juno is my favourite name - please dont make it popular smile

DottieDaisy Sun 24-Feb-13 15:33:34

Happy at this stage it seems unlikely that we will ever decide on a girls name sad

dashoflime Sun 24-Feb-13 15:36:36

Juno dunno why, just like it better

MamaJessica2 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:50:19

Juno smile

LynetteScavo Sun 24-Feb-13 15:52:03

They are both so lovely I can't decide!

But they are both quite different, and I think you'd need to see what they baby looked like first.

Depends what your surname is. Juno Watts would be a bit cruel.

DottieDaisy Sun 24-Feb-13 16:32:23

Cheese both sound fine with our surname! grin @ Juno Watts!

Clementine, think Juno will date really quickly

Juno just pips it for me, but Clementine is also lovely.

JUNO!!! I know a Clementine and it just doesn't shorten well..

LineRunner Sun 24-Feb-13 17:21:57

Clem is nice

ZolaBuddleia Sun 24-Feb-13 17:23:02

Love them both. Don't get Juno Watts. blush

Reckon criticisms from people could be Juno is more pretentious, and Clementine feels more posh.

LineRunner Sun 24-Feb-13 17:31:59

Juno Watts

You Know What

I quite like Clemmie

farmersdaughter Sun 24-Feb-13 17:46:33

I would pick Juno as DHBF has a Clementine!

farmersdaughter Sun 24-Feb-13 17:47:16

Oh I don't like Clem or Clemmy.

Defo Juno

kslatts Sun 24-Feb-13 17:56:09

Love Juno, not keen on Clementine

nectarini1983 Sun 24-Feb-13 20:39:58

Clementine for me. Juno doesn't sound like a real name. ....like an Aussie version of a name....if you know what I mean?! ha ha x

Hmm, don't really like either. Juno, just.

CruCru Mon 25-Feb-13 10:04:50

Juno is lovely.

Bonsoir Mon 25-Feb-13 10:07:20

Juno has chav potential which Clementine doesn't.

Astley Mon 25-Feb-13 14:18:09

Juno. Clementine will always be a fruit and Clemmie is not a nice nn. All the clammy Clemmie and Phelgmy Clemmie potential.

Astley Mon 25-Feb-13 14:19:04

Oops posted too soon, also meant to say Clementine is very twee. Not what i's want to be called as an adult.

Juno is a strong, classic name.

DottieDaisy Mon 25-Feb-13 14:24:11

Astley, that would be my reservation about Clementine the lack of nice nn. Bonsoir, I don't really agree about Juno and its chav potential....is it because of the movie that you say that? The movie certainly didn't boost its usage anyway going by recent name stats.

Astley Mon 25-Feb-13 15:18:41

Juno is a classical name, a Roman Goddess. How could it ever be a chav name shock

Our local maternity unit is a called the 'Juno suit' as Juno comes from the word for rejuvenate and Juno the Goddess was also a protector of the community which I think is beautiful.

DottieDaisy Mon 25-Feb-13 15:19:54

That is lovely, Astley!

Astley Mon 25-Feb-13 15:22:47

Yeah, I really think so. I would rather have the name of a Goddess who's role was to protect the people than risk being called clammy Clemmie any day grin

momb Mon 25-Feb-13 15:31:07

My YD's bff is a Clem and she is anything but twee! I think of it as a traditional but fearless name, rather like her.

Juno is a difficult one, as it depends on what your daughter grows up to be like....sort of the female equivalent of naming ones son Hercules and praying they don't grow up looking more like a Damocles :-D. If you are tall serene people then perhaps Juno will work for you.

DottieDaisy Mon 25-Feb-13 20:30:59

I think I may use them both and go with Juno Clementine grin

nkf Mon 25-Feb-13 20:33:47

I love both but Juno is special. Will she end up being called June though?

DottieDaisy Tue 26-Feb-13 15:43:19

Yeah I think Juno is pretty special too, I'm not overly worried that it will be shortened to June, family won't o it anyway or I would be very very angry
