As a June baby, I've always thought Juneau was adorable and I actually like its spelling more than Juno. Juneau is my favorite, followed by Augusta and Helena. My favorite for a boy is Lincoln. I was also pleasantly surprised to see so many male Raleighs because I've only seen it suggested for girls.
