Meanings and history of the name Djuna: | Edit

Djuna Barnes wrote in February, 1967, answering a letter from a fan who had named her daughter Djuna after the author: "It is a name made up by my father; there was no other Djuna, only me. Then my niece got it, and now your daughter. How nice! If the name means anything, it means 'the light of the moon,' because my eldest brother, when an infant, called the moon 'nuna'. My father, at that time, reading the novel *The Wandering Jew* by Eugene Sue (?), liking the Prince therein, called 'Djalma' (Indian) (I think) put the Dj on to the 'una', and there you are, and blessings on her."
