Etymology 1 edit

From Middle English June, june, re-Latinised variants of earlier Middle English Juyn, juyng, from Old French juing, juin, from Latin iūnius, the month of the goddess Iuno (Juno), perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *h₂yéwHō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂óyu (vital force, youthful vigor).

Proper noun edit

June (plural Junes)

  1. The sixth month of the Gregorian calendar, following May and preceding July. Abbreviation: Jun or Jun.
    This glad June day.
    • 1913, Joseph C[rosby] Lincoln, chapter I, in Mr. Pratt’s Patients, New York, N.Y., London: D[aniel] Appleton and Company, →OCLC:
      'Twas early June, the new grass was flourishing everywheres, the posies in the yard—peonies and such—in full bloom, the sun was shining, and the water of the bay was blue, with light green streaks where the shoal showed.
  2. A female given name from English for a girl born in June, used since the end of the 19th century.
    • 2002, Kate Atkinson, Not the End of the World, Doubleday, →ISBN, page 29:
      Her parents were old, really old. That's why they'd given her such an old-fashioned name. June, because she was born in June. If she'd been born in November would they have called her November? June was a name for women in sitcoms and soap operas, the name of women who knit with synthetic wool and follow recipes that use cornflakes, not the name of a thirty-year-old with a ring in her nose ('Oh, June'.)
