Well I'm part of a long line of Moon's that come from Yorkshire and on my dads side back to Ireland. Surprised to see the name Austin pop up a lot in this thread as my fathers name is Austin moon and i thought Austin wasn't a popular name. You put in my sisters name into google and she's the first image as she was in the Yorkshire evening post as the girl with 4 kidneys. Either way seems like alot of our family would we no longer are in touch with live either in ireland or down in kent somewhere. would like to learn more without paying for the information at hand.
I married into a "Moon" family myself. I was told by my ex mother in law, that the Moon Family as far as she knows came from the French. Most of her Moon family originally moved to Louisiana. So My ex husband said he was French Cajun. I too am very curious to know where the name Moon comes from, as I have a son by my ex husband and would like to trace back the name. I at least know where my maiden names is derived from. :)

My great-grandfather was Ethan Allen Moon. The story I was told as a child was that the "Moons" were from Denmark first and were vikings. The story goes that they were a clan that went to war under a banner of a cresent moon. They did well in battle and were granted lands in the British Isles. They kept the surname of the flag they fought under because everyone called them "Moons" anyway. The name is supposed to mean the moon in the sky in whatever language you are using. Anyone else hear this story as a child?

My last name is Moon. My family (grandparents) are from Iowa, but now live in Wisconsin along with me. I've been interested in my family's ancestry for a while now. If anyone knows Paul and Toni Moon they're my grandparents. Perhaps you could offer some insight. My grandmother's maiden name is Davis ... I'm not sure if that helps.
I'm Johnny R. Moon originally from Coffee Co. Georgia. Far as I know much of my family on that side are local and up around the Atlanta area. I've heard different versions of Finland and Scotland, as well as Denmark, England, and France so far. Considering the word itself, there's bound to be some confusion in origins.
I live in ny and have been curious about my last name I have a lot of family up here but no one talks or know much about the history of the name

I am looking for information about the Moon family who lived in Columbia County, NY and later moved upstate to the Oswego/Onondaga area. Stephen Moon had several children buried in Columbia County and he and his wife Triphena may have moved upstate to Cayuga County first in the 1830's-40's. Any info would be appreciated.

Shirley (Moon) Taft
I am 74 and grew up believing my surname "Moon" was of Native American Decent? My Father was Archie Moon, originally from Cat Head,Pa (as it was called yrs ago) but I only knew it as Sabinsville,Pa ( in Northeastern,Pa), his 2 brothers were Lee & Roland Moon, and 3 sisters Grace, Lily & Edith Moon, I never knew or don't remember what my grandfathers name was on our Moon side, as my father was older then my mom when I was born and my grandfather was already deceased..
I am after information about a Jim Moon who would have lived in Reading Pennsylvania in 1966/67. His wife may have been Margaret and they had three children. If any Moon here knows anything at all please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
