De Luna

SDB Popularity ranking:

Recorded in the spellings of De Luna, Luna, and Luno, this is an Italian and Spanish surname, but of Roman (Latin) origins. It derives from the ancient word 'lumina' meaning 'light', and describes either a person who came from a place called 'Luna' or one who lived in a house with an open courtyard. Since most courtyards were enclosed, and deliberately constructed to restrict the incoming sunlight, it is not clear what is meant by an 'open courtyard'. However a more likely explanation for most nameholders is that they originate from one of the villages called 'Luna' in both Italy and Spain, and particularly 'Luna' in the Spanish province of Saragossa. This village is believed to have received its name because it was in an exposed place, but this is not proven. Either way the name is well recorded both in the Olde World and in the Americas. Examples of the early recordings taken from authentic church and civil registers include those of Martin de Luna, who married Maria de Mendiola, at Santa Maria, Navarra, Spain, on June 7th , Geronimo de Luno, christened on April 21st at San Martin, Viscaya, Spain, and Maria Josepha Luna, christened at Godnales, Cadiz, Spain, on September 23rd The first recording in California may be that of Francisco Bernard Luna, who married Esperanza Castro at San Bernardino, on May 12th The coat of arms has the blazon of a gold field, charged with a blue saltire, indicating one who suffered for his faith. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Leonardo de Luna, which was dated February 16th , a witness at Trapani, Italy, during the reign of Emperor Rudolf 11 of the Holy Roman Empire, - Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Deluna Coat of Arms / Deluna Family CrestThis Italian surname of DELUNA was of two-fold origin. It was a name given to literally, a moon-struck person. The Romans believed that the mind was affected and that 'lunatics' grew more and more frenzied as the moon increased to its full. It was also a nickname 'the moon-headed' person referring to one who was bald. The prophet Elisha had a bald head, as it says in the Bible, and small boys mocked him with 'Go up, thou bald head, go up!'. It was perhaps only the reverence paid to Elisha by reason of his position as the beloved leader of the prophetic guilds, and high esteem in which he was held by King Joash, prevented him from going down in history by this clearly awful name. The name was also adopted by Jews and in the Jewish calendar, the lunar month commences at sunset of the day when the new moon is first seen after sunset, and varies in length, being sometimes 29 and sometimes 30 days. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error. Among the humbler classes of European society, and especially among illiterate people, individuals were willing to accept the mistakes of officials, clerks and priests as officially bestowing a new version of their surname, just as they had meekly accepted the surname they had been born with. In North America, the linguistic problems confronting immigration officials at Ellis Island in the 19th century were legendary as a prolific source of Anglicization. The origins of Italian surnames are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that fixed bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian surname endings are 'i' and 'o', the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form 'o' is more typical of southern Italy.
