Me and DH rarely agree on names but one that we both like is Luna. I think it would go well as our surname is Spanish. I haven't told DH it is the name of a character in Harry Potter as he'd probably go off it and currently he absolutely loves it!

I just worry people will think it's weird, what do you think?

I think Luna is lovely smile

I also like Lola, Lula, Nuala (Noo-la), so it was always going to be a hit for me grin

I loved Luna on "Bear in the Big Blue House". Cute name.

I know one of a bout 4 and I'm afraid I don't like the sound of it or its associations (moon, lunatic)

I love it.

Love Juno as well which (to me) is similar

Pretty, but Loony Lovegood does spring to mind.

I really wanted it as DDs middle name but OH wouldnt allow.
I love it!

If you are having a july baby it would also be extra appropriate!

I really like the name Luna. If you like it OP then go for it, people will always make up nicknames/add on stuff to pretty much all names.

As for the HP connection, I obviously didn't get far enough reading the books to see where the name Luna comes in. Or I just can't remember!

I really like Luna for a girl too but after hearing the character in Harry Potter get called "Loony" it's made me think of the bullying it could cause...

Choccyhobnob Mon 15-Jul-13 11:00:24

amandine she's a major character from the 5th book in I think smile

ClaireLouise probably didn't help that Luna Lovegood was a bit weird...i'll try and discourage ours from wearing radish earrings and the like grin

It's a silly name. Use it for a middle name but don't saddle your dd with such an unconventional name.

Ragwort Mon 15-Jul-13 11:40:20

Agree with celticclan. The trouble with these threads is that if you are reasonably polite (and some mumsnetters are grin) it is very difficult to say 'what a load of * ' about a name. I usually avoid the 'do you like this name threads' for fear of being offensive but to saddle a child with this sort of name is just so unfair.
