Juno is an ancient Roman god; however, the J could have been pronounced as a Toki Pona J or maybe like in French (or who knows what else), and there's no way to really know which way was most common.

The 'j' in Juno (Roman goddess, wife of Zeus) was pronounced like an English 'y' or German 'j', so it sounded something like the phrase "you know!".
