Name of child in baptism Winkleigh
« on: Sunday 04 April 21 18:05 BST (UK) »
The document has a daughter possibly Jane or June, daughter of Thomas Pope baptized 13 or maybe 19 June 1726 in Winkleigh, Devon

This is possibly from a generation unknown to me.  Found when examining a record for a different person.  My Pope branch is well connected to Winkleigh and area.

The second letter of the name Jane is different from the month June immediately before it.

June is a very recent female forename.
June is a female given name, but it is also used as a male given name in English-speaking countries. It comes from the name of the month, which is derived from Juno, the name of a Roman goddess. ... As a boy's name, June reached a peak in 1922 at 697th, but then also declined and left the top 1000 list in 1939.
