June month number

June, the sixth month of the Gregorian calendar, is the last month of spring and the start of summer.

June's Latin name is Junius, and according to the poet Ovid (who is considered one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature), it may have been named after the goddess Juno, the wife of Jupiter and goddess of marriage and childbirth.

Ovid provides another possible etymology: the name June may also come from the Latin word iuniores, meaning "young people", in contrast, May would be named after the elders, maiores. Another theory suggests that June is named after Lucius Junius Brutus, one of the Roman Republic's founders and the ancestor of the Roman gens Junia.

In modern times, June is a month of summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere.
