Luna vs. Luna

We’re looking for a name for our first daughter and we both really love Luna. We’ve been looking for what feels a long, long time and we haven’t come across anything else we like as much but the problem is most our family members don’t like it and are trying to put us off. What are your impressions of the name Luna? Do any of you know anyone with this name. What are their middle names or siblings’ names. We’re hoping to convince our family that Luna isn’t as unusual or out there as they might have thought. Thanks

Sorry but I dislike it too. Too close to lunatic and I foresee lots of nasty nicknames

I like the simplicity of the name, and it is very pretty, but to me, it seems so Harry Potterish, and I agree about the nn lunatic.

I really, really like it! I think it’s gorgeous, unusual but definitely recognisable and pronounceable. Sibling names (don’t know any Lunas personally but these are from a very useful site); I would also recommend and which has people who are actually named Luna saying what they like/don’t like about their name.
Anyway, sibling names!
Aria
Ivy
Stella

Gabriel
Milo
Abel

Also, I don’t think that ’loony’ or ’lunatic’ are used AT ALL these days (I have certainly never used either of them and have never even heard anyone use them except in books!) - I really don’t think that’s a problem. Go for Luna! It’s gorgeous.

Luna Madeleine
Luna Gabrielle
Luna Charlotte
Luna Emmeline
Luna Mathilde
Luna Isobel
Luna Penelope
Best of luck! Hope I’ve been helpful (sorry for the ridiculous length of this comment).

I’m not a fan of it either. But its your baby so their opinions shouldn’t matter. Also I’ve never met any one named Luna. Here’s a few similar name ideas you might like.

Lola
Lucia
Lucy
Laura
Lori
Laurel
Lily
Leanna
Lenae

Like any?

Thanks everyone we’re aware of the lunatic link but we don’t think it will ever be a real problem. I really like Luna Charlotte and Luna Mathilde, thanks very much. Laurel is nice, I just prefer Luna and I like Lily but it’s so, so overly popular here in England right now, thanks though.

My daughter’s name is Luna Eve. It is definitely one of those names that people feel strongly about whether they like or dislike it. We absolutely love this name and haven’t run into any mean nick names yet. She is 6 years old. Luna Eve has two little sisters, Thea Estelle and Esme Isadora

I’m not a fan myself but if you really like a name up should definitely use it, rather than having a name you aren’t that crazy about, your family members can always give her nicknames like ’princess’ or ’lulu’ or whatever if they are that fussed about it and you never know Luna might grow on them.
