Not a big fan of the name Juno, but Rex is a name I love! :)

Juno?! :) I absolutely love that name. Cutest ever. But it does make me wonder if it has anything to do with the movie? I’m not assuming that it does, but just wondering.
I was thinking of calling my dog (when i get one, probably a Chihuahua) Juno after the movie.

Rex & Juno what a cute little pair of names.

I love the names they chose and how they go together. Congratulations!

These names pair together well. Rex means king in Latin while Juno is queen of the Greek gods. They’re cute, if a lot to live up to. I’m not such a big fan of the film but I think these are great names!


I love that he named his daughter Juno ( very cute). I love Coldplay and can’t wait for the album to come out.

Love the film and love the name! I would definitely call my daughter Juno!

Congrats to them! How lovely But wow, these Coldplay babies just keep on coming! The guitarist only had one about six months ago (Violet). They’re going to need a lot of extra space on tour! It’s a wonder they have any time to make music… ;-)
