News: Go Loony For These Lunar Names Inspired By The Moon
Today has a couple of lunar links; it’s generally best known as the day on which Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon but it’s also the day on which the Temple Of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) was destroyed – Artemis being a Greek Goddess who was closely associated with the moon.
So we thought we’d go with a lunar theme for this week’s blog and take a look at some names that have been inspired by the moon.
Moon itself has been used as a baby name and there are plenty of names that mean “Moon”, including:
Alcmene ~ Ayla ~ Aylín ~ Aysel ~ Badar ~ Chan ~ Hala ~ Helen ~ Jacy ~ Jericho ~ Kamaria ~ Lusine/Lucine ~ Mayar ~ Monday ~ Neoma ~ Qamar ~ Quacey ~ Rakesh ~ Selena
There are also plenty of names that have been inspired by Moon Gods and Goddesses (or deities associated with the moon) from across the world, such as:
Arianrhod (Welsh Goddess) ~ Artemis (Greek Goddess; also Cynthia and Delia)
Bulan (Philippine God) ~ Chandra (Hindu God; also Indu) ~ Diana (Roman Goddess)
Elatha (Irish God) ~ Hecate (Greek Goddess) ~ Iah (Egyptian God)
