What are the opinions out there on this name??

We are loving it - it would be baby number 5 so we are considering carefully the fit with siblings and we think it ticks that box also. Possible combinations are

Juniper Jean
Juniper Violet
Juniper Sunshine
Juniper Ann
Juniper Gwendolen
Juniper Mary
Juniper Eileen

Most middle names are family names, except (obviously!) Sunshine - which i just love the sound and feeling of!

well if you love it, use it smile

(Sorry...couldn't resist!)

I wouldn't know whether to expect a boy or a girl for Juniper. In fact I probably would have thought it was a boy. Not really my cup of tea, but each to their own!

It's quite cool in an odd way, a bit like Juno which I'm guessing she will get called!

I like Gwendolen as it rolls off the tongue nicely and was my aunt's name.

Odd!

it seems like you've already decided on it and if it goes with your other dc names then use it!

Personally I wouldn't use it but everyone has different tastes!

Not sure about the choice of middle names tbh, Juniper Eileen etc seem to be going from one extreme to the other!

I quite like it, I think if I heard it I would be surprised by it rather than dislike it. I think it's " a grower" iyswim. I don't think that sounds as positive as I want it to!

BUT

I only like JUniper Jean from your middle name combos and I think that together they sound fab.

Are your others called Pearl, Iris etc?

I like Juniper Sunshine. Go for it!

I love Juniper. Have actually mulled it over myself before.

Juniper Sunshine is ok but personally I think a single syllable would complement Juniper best.

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 16-Sep-08 19:46:40

OOh tell us what your other DC's are called. (so that we can better advise you, not because I'm a nosy old bag!) grin

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 16-Sep-08 19:47:13

Oh and Juniper Jean is my favorite out of your list.

pointydog Tue 16-Sep-08 19:52:08

well I like Juniper Jean and Jumiper SUnshine.

Hmmm - Juniper Myrtle is a bit too 'herby' isn't it. I've got a little Myrtle growing in a pot outside my front door at the moment. And some Lemon Verbena, but I think Myrtle Verbena is too much for a child's name.

Juniper Jean/Sunshine is so goddam crazy that it works

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 16-Sep-08 20:01:03

Juniper Jean the Jumping Bean.
That's what my 7 year old said when I asked her.
Irrelevant I know but now it's stuck in my head.
Do tell the names of your others OP.......

sorry-just wanted to point out in case you hadn't realised.

the baby is REAL you know. it will be a real person.

not a teddy bear.

you do realise? when it's time for baby to be born..it's not like going to the build a bear factory??

pointydog Tue 16-Sep-08 20:02:19

ach, Juniper's ok. Can always be shortened to June. We need crazy people

MlleFingeot Tue 16-Sep-08 20:02:44

I had it on my list but had a boy. Also baby due in June= June Nipper! grin

But it's very nice.
