Silhouetted branches against a luminous full moon: exploring the origins and meanings behind traditional full moon names through a spiritual lens.

Full Moon Names

As long as humans could make spatial observances and correlations, the Full Moons had names. Named after the seasonal happenings, each moon let the tribe know what to expect and how to work and navigate life for the next month. Different tribes in different locations around the world each had a different name for each of the year’s 13 moons.

So, our list will contain all of the full moon names that we’ve encountered within our research! Each moon named due to the month or part of the season that it occurs within. Moon names are not tied to the date of the full moon; it is tied to the month.
