raven moon

Enquiring minds want to know, "What is the name of this months full moon?" So far, I have heard several different names...making me wonder why there is a discrepancy. I have learned that most names of full moons have their origin in Native American or European folklore-as the naming of astronomical items do, even into pre-history! Take for instance the names of most of the northern constellations. They can be traced back as far as the Greeks! As far as I know, it is impossible to prove the definitive origin of these names, but it is fun to wonder. I prefer the Algonquin Tribe Moon Names,(gee I wonder why) so I will call this months beauty "Raven Moon"
