I really like it but have seen such negativity online and I know the family would all hate it!

I also like Lyra but OH doesn't. Will have to fit with Jacob, whatever name we choose.

Selene or Selena.

Celeste
Nova
Leila
Lydia
Wasn't sure if you're looking for a similar sound or a similar meaning!

I love Luna but sadly DP says too many dogs have the name.

How about
Leia
Lila
Aria
Amara
Elena

Loony Luna sadly, I like it too but I’d never use it.
Lyra is too near liar imo.
Una seems to be nearest in sound.
L names:
Lucy
Loveday
Lottie

Moon names
Selene/Selena

Star names:
Stella
Astrid
Seren

I personally think Luna is lovely and think your family would get used to it. It’s a fairly mainstream name now. Its not going to shock anyone in reality.

Similar (ish) names

Cora
Willa
Holly
Aria

I love it but it’s overused by babies and pets.

My friend recently wanted to name her baby Luna but her OH didn’t like it so they went with Leila instead.

Eris - is a dwarf plant as well as the Greek goddess of chaos.
One of our cats is called this but would work nicely for a person too!

Surely it has to be Lara?

purpledingyoverboard Fri 17-Jan-20 16:34:50

Lana, Lena, Layla, Leah

DoctorChoc Fri 17-Jan-20 20:45:02

Definitely associate it with a cat's name!

How about:-
Lara
Elena (or Eleanor spelling)
Leonie
Kiera
Seren
Sophia

DoctorChoc Fri 17-Jan-20 21:22:20

Oh and Layla and Lucy

pumpkinpie01 Fri 17-Jan-20 21:59:49

Lana
Georgia
Kiera

Another vote for Lara or Leia.

Verily1 Fri 17-Jan-20 22:08:39

Lana or Lara

iemma321q Fri 17-Jan-20 22:09:55

What about Luana?

Lobsterquadrille2 Fri 17-Jan-20 22:41:46

Thea.

Leah

Hmmm maybe not actually, I think Leah was one of Jacob's wives in the old testament... maybe not great for brother and sister!

Ellmau Sat 18-Jan-20 21:32:29

Lila/Lilah

I think Lucy has a similar sound.
Eden has a similar feel.
My suggestions
