The Meaning Behind Selena's Name Could Not Be More Fitting.

Selena Gomez might be famous now, but if you say Selena to any Latinx, they'll know you're referring to the original:
Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
While Selena G. was named after Selena Q., the meaning of the Tejano singer's moniker is one that might surprise you.
The name Selena derives from the Greek word Selene, which means "moon goddess" yes, Selena's name literally means GODDESS.
Tell us that's not incredibly fitting considering the Mexican-American singer was basically born to be a star.
It's been said that; while expecting a boy, The Quintanilla's had chosen the name Mark Anthony for their third child. To their surprise it was a girl. Mrs. Quintanilla's hospital roommate was expecting a girl which she had picked the name Selena, instead she had a boy.
The Quintanilla's decided to name their youngest child Selena.
The year Selena passed away, her name was number 91 on the list of most popular baby names. It's now in the 285th spot.
