There are several ways of ensuring the birth of your baby is one to remember, and one of the most exciting aspects of parenthood is choosing the name of your baby.

There is no reason to conform in the modern age, so the choices are endless regarding potential baby names. However, some parents can feel overwhelmed by the choice available, with some help from my maternity clients who are due babies in June, we picked some of the most popular June baby name ideas that should help make the naming of your baby easier.

Here is a list of Neath Port Talbot Maternity Photographer's clients who are expecting newborns in June:

June

Baby name Meaning:

Given we’re considering names for the summer months, it should come as no surprise that June is one of the most popular names for the season.

In addition to celebrating the month your baby was born, the name is of Latin origin meaning ‘young’. The Latin name is derived from ‘Juno’ the Roman goddess who protected marriage and childbirth

Clare. Aberavon Maternity Photoshoot client had to say:

Alexandra

Baby name Meaning:

One of the birthstones associated with June births is Alexandrite which promotes fortune and luck. If you’re keen to celebrate the birthstone of June in style, then why not consider Alexandra? A popular girl’s name, Alexandra has biblical connections meaning ‘Protector of Man’ while also being an epithet given to the Greek goddess Hera.

There can be several iterations of Ray, but one of the most popular is ‘wise protector’. The German iteration of Ray is a form of Raymon and translates to ‘advice’ or ‘decision’.
