Juno: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Juno

Juno

Pronunciation: JOO-noh (key)

In languages like Italian and Spanish, an -o ending signals masculinity. But when you put an -o on an English girl's name, it doesn't sound boyish (unlike, say, -son or -man names). It sounds quirky, individualistic and confident. That description fits the title character of the 2007 film Juno to a T.
