Best Answer

The English equivalent of the Latin word luna is moon. By extension, the word may go on to mean a 'night', or a 'month'. Additionally, the word describes a crescent-shaped ornament that Roman senators wore on their shoes. And the word is applied to the goddess of the moon, who is Selene and then Artemis in the earlier, ancient, classical Greek; and Luna and then Diana in ancient, classical Latin.
