This is a Romance language name. The family name is "de Luna", not "Luna".

Jeffrey "Jeff" de Luna (born February 14, 1984) is a Filipino professional pool player[1] from Manila. His nickname is "Jeff Bata", due to the similarity of his playing style to that of his mentor, Efren "Bata" Reyes.

During the 2006 Men's World Nine-ball Championship he survived the group stages, the round of 64 and the round of 32, but was eliminated in the round of 16 by Luong Chi Dung. This performance secured him a spot in the 2007 edition of the tournament.

At the 2006 Asian Games in Qatar, de Luna made to the final of the nine-ball singles. However, he lost to his compatriot Antonio Gabica in the final and had to settle for a silver medal. In 2009, de Luna was also a runner-up to Ricky Yang in the first-ever Philippine Open Ten-ball Championship.
