Luna Violet....Too far out or manageable?

We decided tonight that we both love the name Luna. We think it is beautiful. It means moon but is also associated with magic and madness which is an idea we think is very cool ha.
Possibly will team it with Violet as a middle name as this was initially top of our girls list.
Keeping names and gender(once we find out in two weeks) a secret so can't ask for friends opinions so what do you guys think?
I myself have an unusual name (first middle and maiden name) and usually suffered from awkward spelling and mispronunciation due to this, tended to be known by a nickname til my mid teens. However this shouldn't be an issue with Luna as its pretty straightforward. Plus I now love my name and appreciate the fact I know nobody else with it, and never have!
So opinions please on Luna possibly followed by Violet. Mental or quirky?

Your apologies fine and naturally accepted.
Of course I want an opinion. It's just that I would never dream of being rude with my opinion! Which is what some of you have been. Questioning our characters for 'saddling' a child with a name,as though our intentions are to be cruel.
If you wouldn't deem it polite or ok to say in the real world, why is it ok to say it safely in front of your computer screen?
You'll see that I have been welcoming of the polite negative reactions and actually taken away what they've said.
I just found it amusing that Dr's and Lawyers are 'serious' people. You've obviously never met our family!
But if it's fine to be rude, then we'll have another Ruby or Lily or better yet an Ellie yawn. That way they can be whoever they want to be,which will inevitably be just like everyone else.

I love it!

My dd1 has an unusual name. We love it, and especially love the fact she isn't another Isabella, Isabelle, Ella, Ellie or Evie...

I like Violet, sorry but Luna is quite pretty and also the name of a buggy - as has been pointed out I'm sure - and I'm not sure about the combination.

But if you love it then do it smile

This has been one of the funniest baby name threads in ages.

Well Welly you have spirit!

I'm sure any daughter of yours will be able to pull of Luna Violet.

Welly - because generally, people ask strangers on the internet their opinons, for that very reason - to find out what people really think, rather than the polite "er, well, it wouldn't be my choice" or "It's quite unusual, isn't it" comments people would get in real life, by asking their friends.
IMVHO Viviennemary wasn't rude at all - she was being open and honest with her thoughts. If you don't want that, then don't start a baby names thread asking what people think! confused

I think it's "dreadful" and if a footballer has called his child Luna it goes out of the "far out" category straight into the "what celebs name their kids" category. but I will adjust my answer to your "strict guidelines on how to answer a baby name thread"

It's not to my taste smile

Lady she said it's ok to be rude...

Therefore i would think god what a twat to call your dd that! :-) out loud i would say oh how unusual.

Luna is a charming name. I know two, so it's not that unusual. Violet is pretty. However in a playground, as a combination of names it could become Violent Lunatic, you know how children are.
One or the other, not both together.
