The month June was, according to some sources, named after the Roman goddess Juno, wife of Jupiter, the goddess of marriage and a married couple's household. June is known for the large number of marriages that occur over the course of the month, perhaps because it is considered good luck to be married in the month dedicated to marriage. Interestingly, in various calendars, June is also called the season of the unicorn.
