There’s something sweet and charming about a girl called Luna. In Roman mythology, she was the goddess of the moon, often shown driving a white chariot across the sky—clearly a brave and independent spirit. The Romans revered Luna since the moon helped them calculate time. Celebrities are also over the moon for the name and have given it to their daughters, including Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem in 2013, and John Legend and Chrissy Teigen in 2016. Harry Potter fans will remember the loony but lovable Hogwarts student Luna Lovegood.
