Good observation. We have 'mesec' for month and 'mesechina' for moon. One is derived from the other because there is approximately one full moon every month. So maybe looking at both the terms for moon and month will help?

Month in following languages:
Bulgarian = mesec
Russian - mesjac
Serbian = mesec
Croatian - mjesec
Spanish = mes
Italian = mese
Latin = mense

Two observations I noted: Serbian and Croatian use the same word for moon as they use for month in their respective languages. Many languages that use some version of luna for moon still use some variation of mes- for month.
