Word Nerd: Plenilune

plenilune definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyPlenilune is a full moon or the time of the full moon. Plenilune is a Middle English word that derives from the Latin plenilunium, which derives from plenus (full) and lunium / luna (moon).

Plenilune is a word with a fairly straight forward definition – a full moon. Plenilune is such a poetic word ~ “The night sky, lit up with the plenilune/a world of dreams come yet to come true…” and a very lovely one at that.

Plenilune is definitely a favorite word and it goes hand-in-hand with Neomenia which is also a favorite. I adore the moon and all of it’s phases and to have such delightful words to describe the full and new moons with makes me giddy! Do you like plenilune?

Namaste ~ Ella
