Names like Luna and Nova

My friend is interested in outer space themed names. She loves [name_f]Luna[/name_f] and [name_f]Nova[/name_f] but they’re a little too common. What other girls names have outer space meanings and would it be too much to have a first and middle name both outer space themed?

[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u], [name_m]Jupiter[/name_m], [name_m]Aries[/name_m], [name_f]Astrid[/name_f], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], [name_f]Titania[/name_f], [name_f]Venus[/name_f], [name_u]Halley[/name_u], [name_f]Aster[/name_f]

[name_u]Vesper[/name_u]!! So underrated and such a strong name.

[name_f]Alya[/name_f]
[name_f]Elara[/name_f]
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]
[name_u]Vega[/name_u]

I adore [name_u]Vesper[/name_u]! Great suggestion

[name_f]Lux[/name_f]
[name_f]Celestia[/name_f]
[name_f]Nyx[/name_f] (the makeup brand though :confused: )
[name_f]Avalon[/name_f]
[name_u]Echo[/name_u]
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f]
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f]
[name_f]Callisto[/name_f]
[name_f]Comet[/name_f]
[name_f]Galatea[/name_f]
[name_f]Libra[/name_f]
[name_f]Olympia[/name_f]
[name_f]Solstice[/name_f]
[name_f]Anais[/name_f]
[name_f]Lumi[/name_f]
[name_f]Pandora[/name_f]
[name_f]Alula[/name_f]
[name_f]Elara[/name_f]
[name_f]Fay[/name_f]
[name_f]Leda[/name_f]
[name_f]Gaia[/name_f]

So far she likes:
Celeste/Celestia
Alula
Lux
Vesper
Elara
Halley
Venus

[name_f]Cosima[/name_f] was the first that sprang to mind (i.e. the cosmos) though I also thought of [name_f]Lyra[/name_f], [name_f]Estella[/name_f]/[name_f]Stella[/name_f] and [name_u]Vesper[/name_u] (means “evening star” in Latin).

[name_f]Estelle[/name_f]
[name_u]Orion[/name_u]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Portia[/name_f]
[name_u]Halley[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]
[name_f]Elara[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_u]Ray[/name_u]
[name_f]Callisto[/name_f]
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f]
[name_u]Calypso[/name_u]
[name_f]Star[/name_f]

I do think having a first name and a middle name that are both directly from space would be a bit much. But if say, one of those names referenced space with a meaning or something, than that would sound good!:slight_smile:

As for names:

[name_f]Andromeda[/name_f]
[name_f]Cassiopeia[/name_f]
[name_f]Pandora[/name_f]

I just made this list, maybe it will give you some ideas!

meanings in quotes

Izarra - ‘star’
[name_f]Ayla[/name_f] - ‘the halo of light around the moon’ (eye-la)
[name_f]Ayelet[/name_f] - ‘morning star’ (pronounced eye-elle-it)
[name_f]Kira[/name_f] - ‘sun’
[name_f]Soleil[/name_f] - ‘sun’

Would probably pair with a subtle space name like one of the Shakespearean-named moons, like [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] or [name_f]Miranda[/name_f].
