I've just stumbled across the name Luna, and I think I'm totes in love with it.

What are people's opinion on it? It's not a name you hear very often!

I like Luna, but do worry of the NN Lune lol, so stayed away from it

I like it. We know a baby Luna from playgroup and she is adorable. Not met any others though!

Lovegood. Sorry!

I had a guinea pig called Luna.

A friend of mine had a Luna a few weeks ago, I think it's becoming more popular.

Love it.

It's very Harry Potter. Are you OK with that?

My dh and I were literally just discussing which Harry Potter names would make it into the general population.

It isn't to my taste but if you love it go for it.

Not fussed about the Harry Potter thing!

Too close to lunatic for my liking.

There is an Irish film called 'Dancing at Lughnasa' and I think that was a pagan harvest festival.

I love it smile

Makes me think of lunatic, loo, loony etc

I don't hate it, but it's a bit hippy for my taste. Also, I've known far too many dogs named Luna, so there's that association which others may not have.

I know several dogs..

BrienneofQarth Sun 03-Jan-16 17:33:26

Love it so much I might steal it if current cooking child is a girl!

I know a six year old Luna, I think she has Spanish heritage so possibly originates from there as a name?

Next door's cat is called Luna. She is lovely but very noisy.

There's an evil Princess Luna in My Little Pony. Well not evil perhaps, that's overstating it, but she has a bit of a shady past.
That's probably a fairly obscure reference, but I do think the Harry Potter one would be more well known. Still, if you like the name, why not?

Cinnamon2013 Sun 03-Jan-16 18:11:42

I love it. But know too many dogs called Luna.

VocationalGoat Sun 03-Jan-16 18:12:44

So beautiful! I love this name.

Pinklily1 Sun 03-Jan-16 18:17:16

The Harry Potter thing wouldn't have occurred to me. I think its a pretty name but Frank Lampard has a little girl called Luna, so I think its a bit 'footballer'. That said, all names have someone else you can associate with don't they, so I say if you like it go for it.

GoldPlatedBacon Sun 03-Jan-16 18:34:27

I think it's lovely. Bit on the hippy/alternative side but that isn't a bad thing

Raxacoricofallapatorius Sun 03-Jan-16 18:38:21

It's really lovely.

Salene Sun 03-Jan-16 18:39:42

I associate it as a animals name

I know a horse, a dog and few cats called Luna
