If you’re expecting a baby in the month of June, there’s plenty of name inspiration in their birth month. Nod to the first month of summer, the sun, and gorgeous warm weather or pull name inspiration from one of their three birthstones or their traditional birth flower. After all, your June baby is bound to be extra special. In fact, one study shows babies born in June tend to have a sunny disposition!
