I named it Moon Kept because of the tie. It can be tied in a pretty much unlimited number of ways. I personally keep a journal with a clasp like this, and I tie it all sorts of different ways, for a number of reasons, but primarily because if anyone were to open my book there would be no way they could tie it back in the same elaborate way that I had it. Therefore I always know if someone has been peaking. In this moon journal, your secrets are tied away.
