Why this word?
Historically, the plenilune (full moon) has been associated with good fortune and fertility. In pre-Roman history, calendars were oriented around moon cycles, and the months were tracked by the plenilune. The Julian and Gregorian calendars were and are oriented around the sun, but most modern calendars also still note the phases of the moon.
