Do you people not realize our moon’s name is Luna
Or Selene. Psure the Greeks named her before the Romans.
Or, you know, check out this handy list of lunar deities!
Also, lemme quote wikipedia:
The English proper name for Earth’s natural satellite is “the Moon”.
The noun moon derives from moone (around 1380), which developed from mone (1135), which derives from Old English mōna (dating from before 725), which, like all Germanic language cognates, ultimately stems from Proto-Germanic *mǣnōn.
The principal modern English adjective pertaining to the Moon is lunar, derived from the Latin Luna. Another less common adjective is selenic, derived from the Ancient Greek Selene (Σελήνη), from which the prefix “seleno-” (as in selenography) is derived.
