Crescent is such a beautiful name. I also like Cress as a nickname, I'm considering this for a middle name :)

"Sweet Crescent Moon, up in the sky. You sing your song so sweetly after sunshine passes by..." I love this name! I don't like Cress as a nickname however (for people in real life).

I knew a Crescence, which seems a bit more usable. She was also really cool so that helped. :)
