Looney Luna Nicknames

One of my co-workers told me that her friend recently had a baby girl which they named Luna.  She asked what my opinion was on the name.  Obviously, since I named my dog Luna I like the name.  However, I pointed out that as pretty as Luna is for a name, it does come with a number of tough nicknames.  Any child named Luna is going to have to put up with a lot.  Here are some of Luna's nicknames:
  • Looney Luna
  • Looney Toons
  • Looney Bin
  • Looney Ballooney
  • Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter character)
Are you noticing a pattern?

Luna has also earned herself a few other nicknames based on her actions and personality.  Some of the ones listed below you may have already heard us say in previous videos.
  • Alligator (or Gator)
    • She can be a bit snappy when taking a treat.
  • Sassy
    • Since her accident she has become quite vocal about her wants.
  • Girly girl (or Baby girl)
    • For when she's decked out in pink.
  • Lulu
  • Mouse
    • Because she is small, black and has long whiskers.  I normally call her that when she is in the underwater treadmill because she looks so pathetic.
  • Grandpuppy
    • My dad's name for her.

Who would have thought that the name Luna would open up so many doors for nicknames.  It's a good thing she seems to enjoy them all.

Cute nicknames. It's amazing how many nicknames the kids rack up over the years.

I love to hear nicknames. They're always interesting...particularly the stories behind them.

I get called tons of nicknames too. I think it means we are loved.
