Herman van den Dungen: PrimaLuna in Italian language is "First Moon". My grandfather was the first "Herman". My grandmother, an aristocratic lady in a small Dutch village, had a special name for her husband: "Maantje", which means Little Moon (which is now also the name of our small dog), van den Dungen.

"First Light" translates into "Prima Luce" in Italian and this seems very interesting to me: PrimaLuce (FirstLight) is the first light that we, hi-fi lovers with small budgets, can see in this world of darkness populated by way too expensive esoteric gears …
