I was told you should never name your book after the main character unless the MC has a really interesting name. Is this an interesting enough MC name to use it as a title?

Er, the title seems slightly redundant as Luna means moon. Wold be interested in knowing more about the story, thouh.

Luna Moon is a big . . . maybe. I can't decide. I was going to dismiss it for the reason Jason mentions but then again...

I like the title. I thought it was a character’s name before I read your post, so it works for me.

Yes Luna Moon is the main character's name but I just realized I want to make this a 4 book series so I have to think of a name that distinguishes it from the other 3 books. In the book, 14 year old Luna sees a white wolf in the forrest. The locals think the wolf is killing cattle, they call it Perro Fantasma, which means Ghost Dog. They are terrified of it and want it dead, she tries to save it. So I was thinking of either LUNA MOON AND PERRO FANTASMA OR LUNA MOON AND THE GHOST DOG. What do you think?

Perro Fantasma is much more interesting than just "The Ghost Dog". You could shorten or change up the character's name a bit to make it sound a little less redundant. For instance, MISS MOON AND PERRO FANTASMA has some nice alliteration! Or even something like "Little Moon", or just "Luna".

THE WRAITHTOUCHED INHERITANCE (YA Fantasy)

Life was easier before Lina learned she had someone else's memories.

Now she has identity issues and ten thousand people to save.
