I suggested it when rolling off lots of girls names.

Dp loves it. I like it.

What do you think?

I quite like it. I know a Lune (pn Lun-uh, Dutch) - lovely name.

nicename Sun 20-Oct-13 11:47:25

I can't think of a surname it would go with.

Luna Smith
Luna MacDuff
Luna Williams
Luna Rover (my favourite)

Nn looney?

Love it.

Blamenargles Sun 20-Oct-13 12:57:33

I love it, but I'm a huge Harry potter fan

Ah yes Luna lovegood! Thought I had it somewhere else.

I got it from the Disney Pixar short film 'La Luna'. Really beautiful if anyone wants to watch.

We have loved it for years, just waiting for a girl to come along so we can use it! I hope it doesn't become one of those popular, over used names.

Our beautiful cat is called Luna.

I think it's a lovely name smile

Remember Bear in the big blue house? He used to sing to the moon at the end of the day and her name was Luna

My friends dog is Luna

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 20-Oct-13 16:44:59

I like it.

However I always think Luna Lampshade when I see/hear the name. If I knew why I'd tell you.

Luna Moth
I Love it.

Really dislike it.
Makes me think lunatic or Harry Potter. I also know a real life Luna and it just doesn't sit right

Bt who cares..if you and DP like it use it!

DH loves it, but I worry about the nickname potential. Looney, lunatic etc.

Somethingpink Sun 20-Oct-13 18:46:08

Love it we was going to call dd it until we realised that she would probably be nicknamed looney luna sad

floatyflo Sun 20-Oct-13 19:39:55

Yes those potential nicknames put me off to be honest.

However I suppose kids can make mean nnames out of most forenames!

IfYouLoveSomebodyLetThemSleep Sun 20-Oct-13 20:21:23

I have a very normal name and my friends made some awful names out of it! Practically any name can be turned in to an insult, and if it can't then they'll find something else to mock you for.

Rhubarbgarden Sun 20-Oct-13 20:23:09

Makes me think of loofah.

vix206 Sun 20-Oct-13 20:27:54

Beautiful name and it's on our list too. I am so tempted to use it as my company is called For Luna (title of an obscure and much loved song) and so to call my daughter Luna would be fitting grin

I do worry about the silly nicknames but children will fashion a horrid nickname from anything.

nicename Sun 20-Oct-13 21:52:32

I worked with a Lucy once, NN Lucifer.

Choccyhobnob Mon 21-Oct-13 11:33:50

I love it and have started a thread on it before. I know a certain person will come on here soon and rip you to shreds saying you are cruel for even thinking of it! grin Whatever!!

floatyflo Mon 21-Oct-13 11:44:38

Ooh really?! Send them this way Choccy

<sticks 'em up>

grin

I think it's just a nice name to say isn't it. Loooonaaaa. It's a nice round, satisfying name IMO.

squoosh Mon 21-Oct-13 12:41:02

I think it's awful, has a horrible sound.

SanityClause Mon 21-Oct-13 17:25:57

Nice name!

When my DC were little, we used to say "Luna" whenever we saw the moon I still do. blush
