In 1930, a little girl named Venetia Burney suggested that Clyde Tombaugh name his newly discovered planet "Pluto". Tombaugh liked the idea and the name stuck. I like to think that we are doing honor to Tombaugh's legacy by now opening up the naming of Pluto's two tiniest known moons to everyone.
We need to choose two names from Greek mythology related to Hades and the underworld. The Greeks were great storytellers and the "Minions of Hades" are a colorful cast of characters. We have picked out a few of our favorite names to get the voting started, but if you have a better idea, let us know and we might add it to the ballot!
Thanks for participating.
