I know this is a major marmite name. I'm sure the major reservation for people who don't like it will be its nearness to lunatic, which doesn't really bother me, there is always something children could be teased about.

I was reading through the stats yesterday and Luna just really jumped out at me. I think it is simple, not too flowery yet has a little bit of a quirky feel to it. I also adore the moon associations.

What I am interested to know is, do you think the name "goes" with Eli (our ds name)???? I know in terms of origins one is Hebrew and one is Latin but I still think they sound well together, I would just like to hear some opinions! smile

I think they sound good together

I like Luna

It does make me think of the m&p pram though

DitzyDonkey Sat 16-Aug-14 11:26:54

Wow that was a bit of an essay! blush I'm just excited that we may have found our girl name.

Lunastarfish Sat 16-Aug-14 11:51:53

Yes, it's a great name, not that I am biased! grin

Lunastarfish do you have a dd called Luna?

ralinax294 Sat 16-Aug-14 17:28:48

I absolutely love Luna and think it sounds great with Eli, go for it!

DitzyDonkey Sat 16-Aug-14 17:33:17

Lovely comments so far, thank you grin

funnyoldonion Sat 16-Aug-14 19:04:08

Perfect with Eli and I ABSOLUTELY ADORE LUNA! my niece were to be called this but he was a boy, how rude!

Luna is great, I have an Astrid in my arms and I love the celestial feel to both of these names x

Makes me think of Luna lovegood in Harry Potter, nickname 'loony lovegood'...
It's nice though but it does make me imagine someone a bit flakey.

DitzyDonkey Sat 16-Aug-14 19:35:02

funny I love Astrid, that is also on my list. Though I think we have our name with Luna, though if we have another and it turned out to be a dd then Astrid would make a perfect sister to Luna!!!

funnyoldonion Sat 16-Aug-14 20:29:01

I agree! If there's a hidden twin you know what to call her! We all our Astrid "Asti" most of the time, like Luna it's a marmite name but we love it so much! Congrats on little Luna! X

delgirl Sat 16-Aug-14 20:32:46

lovely name

NormanTheForeman Sat 16-Aug-14 20:35:48

Stella would also go well with Luna. I know a Luna (aged about 7).

DitzyDonkey Sun 17-Aug-14 13:06:11

We are thinking Luna Brigitte!

fairyteepee Sun 17-Aug-14 19:39:24

perfection, i love it and lets me honest despite the 'loony lovegood' nickname from HP Luna Lovegood is frickin awesome! congratulations

Luna is lovely and goes great with Eli.

I think I'm right in remembering that you're in Ireland, Ditzy? It would be very unusual here, and it's got the cool, quirky vibe that I get the impression you are going for smile

frames Sun 17-Aug-14 20:41:17

No. Think this is weird. OK for a car.

Iseechickens Sun 17-Aug-14 20:42:14

Love the name, same name as one of our hens. grin

DitzyDonkey Sun 17-Aug-14 21:18:18

Drama yep I'm in Ireland, glad your getting the feel we are going for smile

iseechickens well if its good enough for a hen grin I'm the mad hen lady around these parts!!!

chiruri Sun 17-Aug-14 21:21:02

It's very pretty, and I think it goes well with Eli.

Choccyhobnob Mon 18-Aug-14 10:20:27

I love it, my fave name for as yet unconceived child!

woodwaj Tue 19-Aug-14 22:08:08

Me and OH both love it but not brave enough to use it.
