"My husband is Korean and his English name is June, taken from half of his Korean name. It probably should have been spelled Joon or Jun, but he's already been spelling it this way for the past 20+ years so there's no changing it now. I actually don't think it's that weird, but when we eventually move to America I'm sure it will confuse people. (My parents don't have any issues with it, for what it's worth.)" Nov. 2, 2019:

"It's not a name for a boy, it's a month. I pity any child whose parents were so cruel as to name their boy June." Aug. 2, 2020:

"Japanese actor Jun'ichi Haruta is known as both GoggleBlack and DynaBlack, in Goggle V and Dynaman respectively (these are two early Super Sentai shows before Zyuranger - which spawned Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). In the Night Flight parody dub of Dynaman in the late 1980s, DynaBlack's civilian name is Huba but was Ryuu Hoshikawa in the original Japanese language version." Nov. 3, 2009:
"As a Japanese first name spelt 'Jun', it is sometimes elaborated, when a boy's name, to Jun'ichi, as borne by Japanese actor Jun'ichi Haruta (born 17 March 1955 as Hisao Haruta), known for playing two black rangers in two Power Rangers-like shows in Japan in the early 1980s, as firstly Kanpei Kuroda/GoggleBlack in Dai Sentai (i.e. Great Squadron) Goggle Five in 1982, and then Ryuu Hoshikawa/DynaBlack in Kagaku Sentai (i.e. Scientific Squadron) Dynaman in 1983."

"Very common in Japan and China as a name for either sex, but spelt 'Jun' rather than 'June'. Japanese actor Jun Tatara (1917-2006) played the Wizard Barza in Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers) in 1992 and that's the original Super Sentai incarnation of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 1, in which Barza was used as the old body of Zordon before Rita Repulsa (known in Zyuranger as Bandora) put Zordon in his time warp for ever and ever." Oct. 30, 2009:
"Quite a common unisex name in Japan, where it is, however, spelt Jun. A notable bearer is the late Japanese actor Jun Tatara, who played the White Wizard Barza in the 1992 Super Sentai program 'Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger' (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers). Apparently, Zordon in 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' (which is based on Zyuranger) once looked like Barza before he was put in a time warp by Rita Repulsa (known in Zyuranger as Bandora)."

"A boy named June? Not likely (unless he is named Junior or any other traditional male name also borne by his father), and it's even worse than a boy named Sue!" May. 27, 2008:
