Is Juror a name?

Or something that sounds similar? Heard some parents shouting their (boy) toddler today, both calling at the same time so I couldn’t tell what they were calling exactly but it sounded like Juror. Was it Juror or was it something else?

Maybe Junior?

Jura?

Island in Scotland, mountains in France.

I'd put money on it being Jorah - from Game of Thrones.
Pronounced pretty much exactly like Juror.

No idea if it's a name outside of GoT.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 24-Oct-17 21:09:32

I don't know but it should be.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Tue 24-Oct-17 21:09:44

Ah yes probably the GoT name then, they’re all over the place round here. I know two Tyrions and they’re both in the very small circle of people I know...

Game of Thrones - maybe not spelt the same way though but sounds the same.

Sorry cross posted!

I think Jorah is also a Biblical name.

My immediate thought was Jorah from ‘Game of Thrones’ too!

Juror? Confusing if he's called up for duty on a court case!

Can't say I've ever heard of it/ read it before. Intrigued now.

Yes, Jorah is a Hebrew name also, so not quite as daft as some GoT names. wink

millifiori Wed 25-Oct-17 09:28:26

Juror means someone on jury service.
Junot (boy's name)
Jonah
Jorah
Junior

was it any of these?

Zhabr Wed 25-Oct-17 09:55:41

Can it be Juri? Also there is a Russian name Yuri (like Yuri Gagarin), littles ones are often called Yura.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Wed 25-Oct-17 10:18:53

Zhabar nonit definitely ended in an ‘ah’ sound. I’m guessing he’s probably Jorah, he’s the right sort of age for a GoT name.

Zhabr Wed 25-Oct-17 10:55:29

SexLube, just remembered that there is also a name Zhora (short from Georgi), not very popular now, but know a family who uses it at home. The boy is George at school, Zhora at home. But may be GofT of course.

Carouselfish Wed 25-Oct-17 23:27:23

Jorah was my first thought too (such a Thrones hottie!). Do you really know two Tyrions, Sexlube? I'm sort of boggling in admiration.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Thu 26-Oct-17 11:30:10

I do indeed Carousel. They’re both around the same age (2) and one of them has a baby sister named Temperance.

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Thu 26-Oct-17 11:31:54

I didn’t know who Tyrion was, I just knew it was a GoT name (I don’t watch it) and my friend was like “.... TWO lots of parents have named their son after a homicidal dwarf who murders his whole family...?”

Apparently yes, it would certainly seem that way.

Ionarocks Thu 26-Oct-17 12:19:10

He is a great character though!

Heratnumber7 Thu 26-Oct-17 12:33:01

Temperance is a hell of a name to have to live up to!
I wonder whether the parents know what it means hmm

AutumnalLeaves38 Thu 26-Oct-17 15:44:13

Unrelated, but I'm always curious about your username, OP!
Care to explain, or will I regret asking? grin

SexLubeAndAFishSlice Thu 26-Oct-17 19:35:58

The origin of my name, Autumnal grin It’s not my thread but it’s one of my favourites!

Lunathemoon Thu 26-Oct-17 19:38:23

SexLubeAndAFishSlice crying at that thread😂😂😂😂

AutumnalLeaves38 Thu 26-Oct-17 19:46:08

OP,

Ha! I quite see why that thread made Classics grin

"Amazed that sex Lube and a fish slice didn't work - that's always my go to combination for kitchen emergencies!..." has me sniggering in unseemly manner.
