I'm not mooning over Moon. Why do that to a child? Seriously, it screams depleted gene pool to me.

Nora Moon sounds so lovely!! I think Moon makes a great middle name.

Nina Wonacott Says:


We are naming our daughter Nora Moon. Quirky middle to a tradition first. And for the record, I am Native American and my husband is Hispanic.

EW314 Says:


I do much prefer Luna as a given name, but IMO Moon can make for a nice, very quirky middle to a more traditional first. I much prefer it to Star or Skye, which feel too little-girlish to me.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I like this, and Star. I never used to, but they grew on me.

Zelliew Says:


It's good that her son was spared

Jamanda83 Says:


I know someone who has a daughter named Star. She always said if she had a boy, she'd name him moon. She did have a son and named him John.

Zelliew Says:


I agree

Marlz81 Says:


I'm all for hippie names but this is a little too out there for me.

ffwalcott Says:


Anything can be a name. Just because its not your usual cup of tea doesn't mean it isnt someone else's usual either. People might want to try knew things. A great alternative would be luna though

Caroline Says:


I don't really like these hippy names!!

ahoymccoy Says:


I really, really love this name. I shouldn't, but I feel drawn to it.

CocoWhite Says:


Pretty, but I'd go with Luna instead.
