Gender: F Meaning of Luna: "moon" Origin of Luna: Latin Luna's Popularity in 2012: #223

Popularity: this week.

This strong but shimmery moonstruck name has been growing in popularity, undoubtedly influenced by the Harry Potter character Luna Lovegood. From 2010 to 2012, it quickly jumped 119 places. It had an earlier U.S. popularity around the turn of the last century, reaching a high of Number 403.

The name of the Roman goddess of the moon is increasingly popular in Europe--Luna is now Number 22 in Belgium, for example, and also well used in Denmark and the Netherlands.

Luna makes another appearance as the middle name of Harry Potter's daughter, and as the True Blood teacher-shapeshifter character, Luna Garza.

Constance Marie named her daughter Luna, and Joely Fisher and Ellen Pompeo have used it as a middle. More recently, Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson have chosen Luna as the nickname they'll use for daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence and Penelope Cruz and Javier Barden picked it for their little girl.
