Feel I'm not brave enough to use this name!

Clearly I'm being very hormonal, but I'm just not sure if I'm brave enough to call DC2.....


When we already have an Honor.

Thought maybe Juno would be a great middle name but can't find a first name that really suits. Any suggestions? Names I like are Matilda (but not keen on its popularity) Claudia or India (which DH thinks is kicking the ass out of being middle class) grin

Or should I just stick with Juno?

Don't chicken out. You will regret it. Go with Juno.

East Anglia

out where are you in the country?

DH isn't keen on Matilda, he has a problem as our surname is starts with a M.

Plenty of time to get yet.

I'd go with Matilda.

Juno makes me think of dr Juno on cbeebies!

Sorry got the names the wrong way around , would make exactly he same comment about Juno though , several at school and not odd at all , beautiful in fact

outtolunchagain Tue 09-Jul-13 18:21:23

Honor is a beautiful name , several at school here .Certainly not considered odd at all

Don't chicken out.

Honor, is a beautiful unusual name. There must be others out there.

farmersdaughter Tue 09-Jul-13 18:08:16

We can't use Artemis as friends had one.

Don't like Miverna or Charis. But thank you for the suggestions.

Starting to lose my nerve, currently thinking Charlotte yes I'm a chicken

DH isn't sure on any of them, hasn't said no, just isn't sure!

Gorgeous. Go for Juno!

I knew a girl called Charis. She was the bravest little girl in the world.

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Sun 07-Jul-13 19:55:07

I love Juno. Other mythology type names:

farmersdaughter Sun 07-Jul-13 19:53:53

Sadly we can't use Athena, as much as I do love it.

Diana, is a lovely name however I can't help but think of Princess Diana.

Exbf has a daughter called Cora, annoying as I do love it.

Oh - Charis is gorgeous.

LongWayRound Sun 07-Jul-13 19:27:39

I wouldn't use Juno because of the association with "junoesque" which although it is defined as "Having the stately bearing and imposing beauty of the goddess Juno" actually seems to be used as a euphemism for overweight. If you want a classical goddess, how about Athene?

SconeInSixtySeconds Sun 07-Jul-13 16:11:52

Charis was one of The Graces... <hopeful>

bugsybill Sun 07-Jul-13 13:28:04

How about

Abigail (abi)

dancemom Sun 07-Jul-13 13:09:12

On the Roman Goddess theme, Juno had siblings Diana, Venus and Athena?

CoolStoryBro Sun 07-Jul-13 13:08:12

I think it's cute.

As a complete aside, how do you pronounce Honor? Is it as in honour or like Hannah with an o?! That bothers me whenever I see it written down!! smile

MissStrawberry Sun 07-Jul-13 13:02:20

Never heard of Juno Leigh. Just the name that came to me.

farmersdaughter Sun 07-Jul-13 12:52:04

Not keen on Hope janye but thanks x

farmersdaughter Sun 07-Jul-13 12:42:43

Juno Leigh the DJ? Is a girl....!

Juno is a girls name, Juno was the Roman goddess of marriage and queen of the gods.

SconeInSixtySeconds Sun 07-Jul-13 10:59:49

I always liked the name Charis but was outvoted.

MissStrawberry Sun 07-Jul-13 10:59:23

I thought it was a boy name.

Juno Leigh?

All I can think of.

<rubbish contribution>

Jaynebxl Sun 07-Jul-13 10:50:07

What about Hope?

farmersdaughter Sun 07-Jul-13 09:16:41

Thank you for all the comments, perspective is good!

math I like Naomi and Cleo. DH not keen, some with Beatrix.
Not overly keen on the rest. But thank you.

janye no not at all grin it's been a while since the film, do you invision that to be a problem? I don't think of the film at all, more greek mythology.
Honor is a family name, I do like Grace but feel we would be kicking the ass of of puritan names. Not keen on the others. Maybe Verity, but not keen on nn's.

ELR both names are lovely. However ones my niece and 2 friends have already used the other one.

sky I think it's more likely that our future dog will be called Indy. grin Also a great friend is utterly desperate to use India, she's several weeks behind me. Personally I think it would suit them more.

bug I'm concerned as I'm not really posh I'm sure plenty of people would disagree nor are we hippy like either. Must be the bloody pregnancy hormones wink

Why is it so blinking hard to find a name which is sweet for a little girl, cool for a teenage and suitable for an adult. Arghhh. I think Juno would be awesome, but just a bit concerned how it would fit an adult.

Currently running with Charlotte, Claudia or maybe Hermione. DH has vetoed Matilda. Which is a shame.
