(Some Guy)   Not news: Things need names, so of course Farkers can help. News: Moons of Pluto. But wait, if Pluto's not a planet, are they really moons? Anyway, break out your expertise in Greco-Roman underworld mythology   ( divider line 73

Amberwind: Pluto is the Roman god, so why use Persephone and not Proserpina? Keep to the same version of the mythology, at least...

/Pet peeve dating back to third grade.

I blame Mars!

What are your thoughts on Hekate? Or is that disqualified because it's an asteroid?

I think as a practical matter they have a rule against naming two things with the same name, but even so I associate Hekate more along the lines of Janus(decisions, thresholds, etc.) than I do with Pluto and the underworld.

What about Typhon? That might be an interesting one.

Styx should be reserved for the outermost moon--should they find another one.
2013-02-11 08:38:08 PM  
Styx and Cerberus. That is all.

Brainsick: Styx and Cerberus. That is all.

Styx and Acheron.  Might as well use both river names.

They aren't moons, they are satellites. The Moon is the Moon.

Adrastia and Miseria.

Kind of random, but it fits the whole "I'll show you who's a planet" vibe.

Mentat: Anyone who does not choose Cerberus and Persephone are dead to me.  So to speak.
