    "It's definitely not the strangest celeb baby name we've ever heard!"

    It is not strange at all, Luna is a common name here in Spain.

    Call me confused but is Bardem the baby's last name and Cruz a middle name?? Or, in Spain, the baby takes the mother's name? Kidding.

    Re: namers – In Spain, traditionally the baby takes the first surname of both the parents. The surnames are usually ordered: father's first and then mother's. This is not a law - you can actually choose to pass on your mother's surname to your child if you wish - but the majority of people stick with tradition.

    When many people shorten their name they usually just use their first surname (ie their father's surname) but Javier uses his second surname as a stage name.

    Penélope's full name is Penélope Cruz Sánchez and Javier's is Javier Ángel Encinas Bardem.

    So their children would have the surname Encinas Cruz. It's not traditional for Spanish people to have middle names but it's not uncommon to have two first names (which usually get shorted together eg María Jesús = Chus; José Enrique = Jokí.
