The name June ranked 176th in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
This name is highly rated in the 1990 U.S. Census popularity survey of all ages, but after 1960 does not appear in the state data listing the most popular baby names.
The first month of summer was named after Juno, the ancient Roman queen of the gods. Known to the Greeks as Hera, she was the protector of marriage and married women, which helps to explain the tradition of June weddings.
