Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem Name Daughter Luna

Cruz and Bardem dine with friends

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have named their baby daughter Luna Encinas Cruz. According to Spain’s Vanitas magazine. Their second child was born on July 22 in Madrid. It was also where Bardem, 44, paid a visit to the registrar office on July 30.

Luna translates to moon and the name takes on both her father and mother’s paternal last names – keeping with Spanish tradition. The couple already are parents to 2-year-old Leo – who was born in Los Angeles in 2011.

Cruz, 39, said in a past Vogue interview that she wants her children out of the spotlight.

“I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible,” she said.
