The June flower is the rose...so how about June Rosebuds

Would rosebud be all one word? IDK...anyone?

LOL Heather, I must say I'm not a big fan of the love muffins either. The Feb. 2011 babes are the Sweethearts ... may be not the most original but I thought it was really cute and there were cute blinkies with the candies on it. Smile

Other June info, the birthstone is the pearl but I thought the June Pearls was kinda...yawn.

Love Muffins is sort of strange....

DS1 was born in February but was a January Snow Pea. We had cute little snow pea pod blinkies. DS2 was a November Sweet Potato.

Roebuds is cute too!

My June 2005 board was the June Blessings. I remember there being a HUGE discussion of whether or not "blessing" was too religious and excluded people who weren't religious at all and then in the end everyone ended up agreeing that it was the name they wanted. Oddly enough, that board was more cursed than blessed... we have had two moms from that group die. One while pregnant, and one just a year ago. Anyway...

I think my point (that I lost track of) was I liked moving away from J-words just because it's a J-month. Smile

Not that I have any brilliant ideas of my own right now...

I can totally see that. I'm not super religious so I'm not a super fan of Blessings or Miracles, etc. as a board name...but that's just me.

I remember in June 2007 there were several that HATED Junebuds but that is what we ended up with. I remember there was a big uproar about it!

Lots of crazy stories... I don't remember drama with either of my previous BB names. Can't really remember DD's though. It's just not that big of a deal; if you aren't a big fan, then don't use the name. Problem solved! It isn't like we stamp your baby with it.

June Giggles? June Cuddlebugs? June Squishy? LOL

We're coming close to voting time so if any of you creative girls have more ideas, let us have 'em!

I believe our official June 30th EDD 13 week mark would be this Sunday (Dec 23rd) so I'll start the first round of voting on Sunday morning. The way I've seen it done in the past is to put all the suggestions out there for one round of voting, letting everyone pick 3, then take the top 5 from that round and have everyone pick one. That way, if there is one you really like but it doesn't get close to enough votes, you still get a chance to have a say again in the second round. Unless anyone objects or has another suggestion? Smile

Rosebuds
Jujubes
Jellybeans
Jumping Beans
Jitterbugs
Jaybirds
Jesters
Sunshines
Bugaboos
Bumblebees
Moonstones
Giggles
Cuddlebugs
