Full Sturgeon Moon

I had bookmarked this link some time back and forgotten about it: Full Moon Names for 2009. The notion that full moons by month had names had never really occurred to me before, but upon reflection makes perfect sense—as a means for keeping track of the seasons (and in light of the human penchant for naming things).

Wikipedia has a comprehensive list of full moon names too.

Interesting to note that December of this year has two full moons, one on the 2nd and the other (the Blue Moon) on the 31st—and they both have names, as well: Cold Moon (on the 2nd) and Long Night Moon (on the 31st).

Naturally one of the first thoughts that occurred to me with this list is that these names would make great (seasonal) beer names.
