Luna


Since many years i'm calling myself Luna.
Even in real life many are calling me Luna, this name has become a part of myself, just like my birth name.
But why Luna?
Already as a child i liked the moon very much and when it comes to the name, i like the french form best, more then all other in the world, cause the french form is female.
