I love Luna
I love Luna
I like Luna a lot! It has the fabulous option for Lulu/Lou as a nn, without the nn Lucy, which I semi-dread. Ironically, I still love the flowery longer Lucy names, though--Lucilla, Lucia, Louisa--more than Luna. But I do adore Luna, and I think Emilia Luna is fab! I do really love Emilia Mary, though, too! What about two middles? Emilia Luna Mary? Emilia Mary Luna? I think those would be lovely, too.
It's not my taste. I would only suggest Luna to someone who specifically wants to channel the moon, the atmosphere, or the planets in some way. Otherwise I think it's a name that's more fit for a pet.
I think Luna is really spunky and elegant. I love the connotations surrounding Luna and the fact that it's Spanish for 'moon', Luna is such a lovely choice. I think Luna does have teasing potential I can imagine Luna-tic (lunatic) or Looney Luna being yelled out across the playground but then any name can be made fun of. Furthermore it also depends what type of school you're child will attend if it's multi-cultural with a range of different names than your child will be fine. If your child attends a school full of kids named Archie then it won't work.
No one has mentioned Luna Tuna yet.
I love HP and can't get into this name. I didn't like the character either.
I like Emilia. As a middle name it's distinctive, but it kind blends with Emilia.
A lot of other people like it, but I wouldn't use it. Maybe with a different first name it could be a middle name.
I like Luna. It makes me think of the pale green nocturnal moth of that name, which I always thought was lovely. I don't think it has any worse nickname potential than other names; somebody can always think of something. I have never heard of a pet called Luna, either, as some have mentioned. But a pet can be named just about anything, so I wouldn't let that stop you.
Luna has been my absolute favourite name for a girl since I was about 7 years old, and I'm thrilled to see someone else considering it! However I've found it's very hard to find middle names that fit well with it - Emilia Luna is lovely! Mary is my own name and although I like it, I have never loved it for a first name for several reasons and always wished it was my middle - I second one of the suggestions above of Emilia Mary Luna. Good luck with everything :)
I feel like Im in your boat. A part of me loves it and a part of me thinks she would get called "loony".
