What is a "selenophile"? A selenophile is someone who loves the Moon. It takes its name from Selene, the goddess of the moon in Greek mythology.
Who are some other lunar deities? As we said above, Selene is one of the names for the Moon goddess in Greek mythology. Other moon goddesses from the classical pantheons include Artemis, Diana, Luna, and Cynthia. In Norse mythology, the Moon was personified by M'ani. In Egypt, both Ibis and Khonsu were identified as gods of the moon. The Japanese recognized Tsukuyomi as the god of the moon, while Koreans worshipped the goddess Myeongwol. And this truly just scratches the surface. Throughout history, every culture has had one or more deities associated with various aspects of the moon. What a great topic for further research!
