Which would you prefer. I love both. We are not pregnant yet, just undergoing fertility treatment. Therefore Hope would be very apt. Also Juno as she is the goddess of marriage and fertility. We have a boys name picked which will be Cassius. smile

I like both (helpful! ) but LOVE Juno the film so would probably go fir that.
Howeve...if you were open to suggestions, Nadia also means hope and Mary means wished-for child.
Hope the treatment goes well x

There is no reaction as its a well knowen name.

She is very content child. She was very easy baby sleeped well and hardly cries. Is checky and laughts alot and genraly a pleasure to have.

Her full name is Hope Brynn Frances Goodwin so when we got her Christened the vicar called her the girl with all the names!

My sister thinks its a miles and boom name cos of our surname

I like the name and it suits her, she is normally called Hope Goodwin and i think it sounds nice.

also you cant shorten it and there is no bad nn or insults related to the name.

My 16 month old is Hope so i vote for Hope as its pretty and timeless and goes with any middle names [egrin]

Thanks for all the advice, I think it's pretty divided and I still can't decide....hopefully it won't be a case of too much longer to decide, two years is enough sad

I think Juno has been spoiled by the film.

<I knew an Alsatian named Juno growing up -- she was the bane of the road. Used to chase cars, and children on bikes or skates.>

I really like both, but Hope just wins

Hope definitely - much more timeless and interesting, I think. Juno is very "of the moment".

There is a bull mastif down my road called Juno. Never heard of it before. Q.Nice

Hope. Juno just makes me think of 'junoesque' which should mean statuesque but is usually a euphemism for hefty <speaking as a tall fat person junoesque individual myself>

Hope is lovely

If somebody says 'is that after the film?' you can say 'no it's after Juno and The Paycock'. And look at them like they're a philistine grin

YellowandGreenandRedandBlue Tue 26-Mar-13 19:44:40

Hope is nice.

I wish you well with the fertility treatment x

PipsWife Tue 26-Mar-13 19:42:07

Juno is lovely but would make me think of the film but as soon as it is your little girls name it will no longer be the film IYKWIM.
Hope also lovely and very apt!

Good luck with it all fx.

Just whatever you do.dont go with Juno Hope - You No Hope.

I prefer Juno but dont feel brave enough to use it.

Juno reminds me of Judo and I just do not like at at all sorry.

Juniper with nn Juno would be better IMO.
