Vulcan is the god of fire and the forge. Naming an icy rock that orbits another icy rock a couple billion miles from the sun is simply illogical.

Because Vulcan is a god and only planets get named after gods. Pluto gets a pass because it used to be a planet and we thought we hurt it's feelings bad enough when we demoted so we didn't want to take away it's name too.

Don't feel bad Pluto. I'm not a planet either.
