Aluna is a girl’s name that is Hawaiian, African, and Latin in origin. In the Polynesian culture, Aluna means “descent” or "loosening.” With two meanings that both have to do with movement, Aluna is great for baby if you’re hoping they will have a bit of wanderlust. Alternatively, Aluna might be a respelling of the Latin name Luna, meaning "moon," further ensuring that baby will reach for the stars. Plus, you can't deny that the name just sounds beautiful and rolls well off of the tongue.
