7 Nombres para una niña que significan Luna (que no son Luna)

Siempre me pregunté qué ven los demás en la Luna que les hace sentir tantas cosas. Hay artistas que le regalan canciones y pinturas, personas que se encomiendan a ella, y comunidades que le piden milagros. La Luna se ha convertido en un ícono de naturaleza y buena energía.

No fue hasta hace poco, que empecé a leer acerca del tema, que me di cuenta de la fortaleza y majestuosidad que esconde este maravilloso satélite natural.

En la astrología occidental, la Luna es el símbolo de la naturaleza emocional de las personas y simboliza el proceso de crecimiento personal. Para otros, la luna es un símbolo celestial que representa el equilibrio entre el bien y el mal.

Pero todas las comunidades coinciden en lo mismo, la Luna es un símbolo femenino que representa la naturaleza, la fortaleza y el equilibrio, tres valores elementales para un ser humano y que me gustaría que mi hija llevara consigo. Estas variaciones del Luna podrían ser de inspiración para escoger un nombre:

  1. Thea (Madre de la Luna)
  2. Mahina (Luna en Hawaiano)
  3. Nahiara (Luz de Luna)
  4. Deva (Diosa Hindú de la Luna)
  5. Aisha (Diosa Africana de la Luna)
  6. Purnima (En Hindi significa Luna llena)
  7. Elara (Es el nombre de una de las Lunas de Júpiter)

Cualquiera de estos nombres son poderosos y muy bonitos,  yo me quedaria con Thea, Aisha y Elara si tuviera una pequeña. Y a ti ¿Cuál te gusta?

“True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities. We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are. We have to turn toward our own inner darkness. For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar’s body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form.”

Julia Butterfly Hill, The Legacy of Luna

When your life is threatened, nothing is ever the same. I suddenly saw everything in a new light. All the time and space I had taken for granted became precious. I realized that I had always been looking ahead and planning instead of making sure that every moment counted for something. I also saw that had I not come through the way I did, I would have been very disappointed with my empty life. Perhaps because I had injured the left, analytical side of my brain, the right, a more creative side, began to take over, and my perspective shifted. It became clear to me that our value as people is not our stock portfolios and bank accounts but in the legacies we leave behind.
