Just to be pedantic: not really, in English anyway.  "Lunar" is 
pronounced more like "loo-ner", whereas "thunar" is pronounced "too-nar" 
(I believe someone mentioned that the "h" was silent).  Yeah, English 
vowels are stupid like that.  At any rate, I'm sure any similar spelling 
and/or pronunciation is purely coincidental.
