I can't decide if i like this name, on one hand i do, on the other hand i wonder if people will think "lunatic".

Would love to know everyone's thoughts on it / what you associate it with?

There was a Luna in one of the baby classes I attended with dd about 2 years ago. It's not popular but I don't think you'd get too many raised eyebrows smile

Love it!

I know one & all the small people that meet her instantly shorten to 'looney' which is fine between small people but....

I like it. My immediate association is Lovegood, then my friend's black lab. I know of a few dogs with the name if that bothers you (it doesn't me).

I love it but my cats called Luna so that's all I think of! It's a lovely name though

EmmaGellerGreen Sat 08-Jul-17 13:37:53

I know at least 4 dogs called Luna. All cute dogs but not people.

I love it

ChocAuVin Sat 08-Jul-17 13:48:01

I think it's gorgeous.

Love the name Luna. Though I have come across a lot of dogs called Luna, there's nothing wrong with calling your DD that as people do name their sons Oscar, Max and Barnaby etc.

One m of my favorite children's books to read is Stellaluna And Ellen Pompeo has a gorgeous 7 year old called Stella Luna so I am a bit biased blush

Did Chrissie Teigen called her daughter that?

HughAndCry Sat 08-Jul-17 13:53:24

I do think it sounds pretty and reminds me of the moon..

Very popular in the dog world.

dementedpixie Sat 08-Jul-17 14:00:05

Was going to call my kitten that but when it turned out it was a boy we changed it

(Nothing wrong with that of course, but calling your child in the middle of the park could result in lots of random doggies racing towards you!) grin

Lunatic springs to mind. My friend has a crazy collie dog called it too'

Following this thread as it's on my list. Pretty positive reactions so far!

RockyBird Sat 08-Jul-17 19:31:05

New baby close to me is Luna. She's utterly scrumptious if that helps.

SequinsOnEverything Sat 08-Jul-17 19:32:51

It does make me think of Luna Lovegood, but to me that is a positive. She is one of my favourite characters in Harry Potter. Who wouldn't want a child with the self confidence and belief she has?

TheGirlWithGlassFeet Sat 08-Jul-17 19:37:56

I absolutely love Luna but I would always make the connection to Harry Potter. What about Lena?

turbohamster Sun 09-Jul-17 06:31:17

Luna cup is my immediate association

Summer1986 Sun 09-Jul-17 06:36:36

A friend of mine chose it as a middle name, I think it's a beautiful name

Passmethecrisps Sun 09-Jul-17 06:37:57

I know two little girls with Luna a first name and one with it as a second name. Not as uncommon as you might think but still unlikely to be one of 5 per class.

Lovely name

I immediately think Lovegood from Harry Potter.
