Thoughts on Juno?
Boy or girl?
What springs to mind when you hear the name/what kind of child or family would Juno come from in your mind?

i’ve looked through so many names already….. any other similar vibe name recommendations?

Great Dane

I like it! Reminds me of the movie so I'd automatically assume it was a girls name

deeplybaffled · 03/02/2023 23:18

Girl. Wife / partner of Jupiter, king of the Roman gods, I believe.

Judgyjudgy · 03/02/2023 23:19

Love it. Girl.

villamariavintrapp · 03/02/2023 23:19

Definitely girl. It's ok

CPL593H · 03/02/2023 23:20

Senior Roman goddess. It really isn't a boys name, any more than John or Charles would be suitable for a girl.

Ketchupwee · 03/02/2023 23:22

Girl, wouldn't even cross my mind it might be a boy

Headstones250 · 03/02/2023 23:22

It's a girls name. I think of the film (which I love). It's about teenage pregnancy.

OppsUpsSide · 03/02/2023 23:24

Although an ancient Roman goddess, I think 2000ish years later it could easily be used as either a female or male name. Neither especially springs to mind for me as I don’t know anyone by that name and Roman gods, whilst interesting, are not a particular feature of my life - I imagine that is true of the majority of people.

Juno girl Jago boy

Twinklenoseblows · 03/02/2023 23:25

Girl. 100%

Luredbyapomegranate · 03/02/2023 23:27

It’s a girl’s name!

I quite like it. It seemed to be briefly fashionable 10 or 15 years ago. Until then I’d have said it was very rarified but not anymore.

SugarNspices · 03/02/2023 23:29

Definitely a girls name

Westfacing · 03/02/2023 23:35

Definitely a girl.

What about Geno for a boy?

stonedaisy · 04/02/2023 10:04

Love it - i think of it as a girls name

Twoinapod · 04/02/2023 10:14

Love it but not cool enough to use it, it’s definitely a girls name

BuffaloCauliflower · 04/02/2023 10:18

It’s absolutely a girls name, definitely not for a boy. But a good girls name!

If you like boys names with o’s though how about Jago, Ivo, Arlo, Cosmo?

Mydogatemypurse · 04/02/2023 10:19

Pets name

ShittyPeasantsFromHampshire · 04/02/2023 11:59

Juno was a goddess so definitely a girls' name.

Nico, Cato or Jago is you want an O name for a son.

Ellmau · 04/02/2023 15:00

It's a girl's name. Quite posh, I would assume.

Junius would be OK for a boy. Though also v posh.

HuntingoftheSnark · 04/02/2023 17:53

Not keen. I was Ceres in a school version of The Tempest and recall the line (roughly) "hail, great Juno comes; I know her by her gait". Juno was quite a large girl.

bridgetreilly · 04/02/2023 18:09

It’s been a female name for thousands of years. You should definitely be the ones to break that trend.

Id think it was a child from a vegan, hippy, weave your own blanket from your leg hair type family.

Oops… girl.
