Moonie is the commonly used name for a Sailor Moon fan (similar to "Trekkie" for Star Trek fans). In the middle of a sentence, the word is usually written with a lowercase "m" to distinguish from the now-deprecated nickname for a member of the Unification Church (統一敎會), which is always written with an uppercase "M."

In the past, some fans have been uncomfortable with the name's connotations and have tried to replace it with other terms, such as "mooniac", "moonatic", or "lunarian", with little success.
