Juniper

We are fairly set on Juniper if this bump turns into a girl. Probably Juno for short but well aware she may get June, Juni, June-bug etc. and fine with all of those.

What do people think? And any middle name suggestions that go nicely?

Thanks!

You see juniper, you think gin.

But that says more about me I suspect.

As long as your surname isn't Berry or Bush its lovely.

Beautiful! I love June and considered Juniper but DH vetoed.

WowserBowser Mon 03-Apr-17 19:51:48

I like it!

MarcelineQueen Mon 03-Apr-17 19:53:53

We have a Juno and she gets juju, juji, jujubean, chicken, and snotface as nn's...

People may think you have a penchant for gin, but it's a pretty name. Junie is a cute nickname.

Also Nipper, Nip...

Not really my taste I'm afraid.

Lovely, I like it.

Jooni Mon 03-Apr-17 20:58:51

I like it (have a Juno too so am biased!)

I actually think Nip/Nipper are quite sweet as occasional pet names! blush

I'd go with something a bit more traditional in the middle, maybe:

Juniper Emily
Juniper Blythe
Juniper Cecily
Juniper Florence
Juniper Gwen
Juniper Maeve

Other suggestions;
Juniper Wren
Juniper Blossom
Juniper Kite
Juniper Storm
Juniper Desiree'

Juniper is a firm favourite of mine and is on the list (along with Juno) if this bump turns of to be a little lady!! So a thumbs up from moi.

It's not something I would ever use but I'd think it was a nice sweet name if I ever met a little girl called that. I can't quite picture an adult female with that name though.

I would think Gin too, but I think that's ok as Gin is a nice drink. It's not the same as Chardonnay/Chablis/Martini/Bayley

cailyaclara Mon 03-Apr-17 22:14:10

I love the name Juniper and would have paired it with Blythe if my hubby had let me!!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 03-Apr-17 22:16:57

I love Juniper. Definitely use it.

frums Mon 03-Apr-17 22:20:50

My daughter has a friend called Juniper nn Juna. It's sweet. I too think of Gin but that association just made me chuckle and then I forgot it.

Awful and sounds like Jupiter.

I like it, it's different in a good way.

MummyNotMommy Tue 04-Apr-17 06:57:53

I'm happy to see it's broadly liked! I actually like Nipper etc. as well, cute!
No problems with the gin connection. I love gin.

Thanks for the middle name suggestions. I love Ann and Alice.

ClaryBeanHorshAndMe Tue 04-Apr-17 07:05:17

Nippy! Nipes? Idk, that would be really adorable imo smile

Anyhow... I personally think Juno has th edge, but only by a tiny little margin, both names are really lovely.

But Juniper Alice is gorgeous imo. I also like Juniper Ann, but Ann is im personaly o a bit of a "filler name" if it's used as a middle one (a bit like Grace or Rose, tbh). Which is why I prefer Juniper Alice.

Congratulations smile flowers !

I love it!

SuperBeagle Tue 04-Apr-17 07:12:11

I don't like it at all. Also don't like Juno.

But June is nice enough, with Junie as a nickname.
