The name for our month June comes from the Latin mensis Junius, the "month of Juno". It was considered to be the most favorable period for marrying, but apparently only the second half of the month. (When Ovid consulted the wife of the flamen Dialis about the marriage of his daughter, he was advised to wait until after June 15 when the rubbish from the temple of Vesta had been swept into the Tiber.) From her presiding over the marriage of women, Juno was surnamed Juga or Jugalia, from the Latin iugo, meaning "to bind together."

First of June

Higgledy-Piggledy
Month named for Juno has
Long been considered the
Best time to wed;
Others, resisting the
Pro-matrimonial
Hype, have remained happy
Singles instead.
