Feel I'm not brave enough to use this name!

Clearly I'm being very hormonal, but I'm just not sure if I'm brave enough to call DC2.....

Juno

When we already have an Honor.

Thought maybe Juno would be a great middle name but can't find a first name that really suits. Any suggestions? Names I like are Matilda (but not keen on its popularity) Claudia or India (which DH thinks is kicking the ass out of being middle class) grin

Or should I just stick with Juno?

Not sure about Juno, but June would be lovely.

I hate Juno. The other three names are all much nicer first names IMHO.

Not sure of Juno makes me think of judo

I think its a nice name.

Juno goes very well with Honor - they both have a bit of an alternative American modern feel. Matilda and Claudia do not go as well, being more classic names. India is alternative but it doesn't contrast with Honor as well as Juno.

You were brave enough to use Honor (which, after all, is nice but not common), you're brave enough to use Juno!

It is a marmite name....but I like it.

What about
Cora
Magda (nn maggie)

Not keen on India, never really liked it.
Iona?

Juno makes me think of the film of the same name where the teenager is pregnant & gives baby up for adoption after lots of abortion mentions.

Other than that, the only other time I've heard it is in Beetlejuice where Juno is the afterlife caseworker.

I'm not keen.

I love Juno. It was on the list for my second DD. It is pretty but strong

gaggiagirl Thu 27-Jun-13 15:03:42

Another vote for Cora that's a beautiful name.

I really love Juno & it goes great with Honor.

Not really heard of this before but love it smile

Those are two of my favourite names and they go beautifully together!

Definitely call her Juno.

Great film

ZolaBuddleia Thu 27-Jun-13 15:20:45

Love it. And Honor. And they go well together. Done!

MarianForrester Thu 27-Jun-13 15:20:57

I think Juno is really lovely, and far too nice to be a middle name smile

It makes me think of the goddess, love classical names.

I also think it's different enough to be usual but not wacky, and easy to spell.

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Thu 27-Jun-13 15:23:49

I don't like it - I much prefer either Matilda or Claudia (I don't like India or other 'place' names).

sundanceclaire Thu 27-Jun-13 15:34:23

I like it.

DuchessFanny Thu 27-Jun-13 15:44:22
