Luna: baby girl name meaning and popularity


An Italian and Spanish name meaning “moon” -- which you’ll be seeing a lot of on those sleepless nights when you’re up with a crying Luna -- this was the name (not surprisingly) of the Roman goddess of the moon, who was said to drive a white chariot through the sky. Also, when it comes to Alpha wolves, their mate is called Luna, which basically means queen.


Lu, Lulu.

Famous people named Luna:

Daughter of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend; daughter of Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem; fictional Harry Potter character Luna Lovegood; True Blood character Luna Garza.

Fun fact:

This name may have gained some fame when a strange but sweet Harry Potter character shared it. More than likely, it spiked in popularity when Chrissy Teigen and John Legend chose it for their daughter in 2016.
