LUNA Family HistoryRecorded 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.
