April, May or June? Are these names nice? Does it matter what month she will be born?

I think april is a lovely name and I don't think it matters if they're born in April. smile

April is ok.

Don't like the other two at all.

I'm not wild about April, May is fine, June makes be think 'Terry and ...."

And yes, I think it would be distinctly weird to use a month name in a different month.

May is a lovely name. April is ok. June not so good... Joan or Jean much nicer!

April is nice, not so keen on the others.

Really like April. I'd go for Mae rather than May. June is a bit old lady for me.

Someone I know was due her daughter in June, and somewhat sadly decided it would be weird to name a June baby April... April Rose arrived prematurely. (She was fine and is now seven.)

May is utterly overused as a middle name. It's this generation's Jane/Louise.

June is probably due a revival but it's a bit stuffy just yet.

I quite like them all, but would find it a bit odd to use them if they weren't the birth month. Unless you were calling the baby after a relative/friend.

Although having said that, I have a feeling that May might have originated as a flower name, as in hawthorn.

My Grandmother is called May and was born in October.
She also has a sister June! Not sure of her birthday though.

It means I've been saddled with May as a middle name which is now very common, not so much when I was younger, so everyone used to think that MY birthday was in May.

May is lovely. My aunty spelled her name 'Mai'.

I love June. So much.

May is everybody's name, and April feels too 90s.

June is having a big comeback where I am.

I agree April sounds very dated (very 70s/80s to my ear) and May is too popular.

May is a short form or pet form of Mary.
