It will be interesting to see if they actually name it Vulcan, since it won the vote.
I thought the same, but hey, Pluto has the name of a Disney's character, right? :P

No, seriously, in fact I completelly forgot that Vulcan was a Roman god, so I don't see why they wouldn't name it Vulcan,

Quote from: Wikipedia
In ancient Roman religion and myth, Vulcan (Latin: Vulcanus) is the god of fire including the fire of volcanoes. Vulcan is often depicted with a blacksmith's hammer read the whole definition.
I would understand they would not name it Q'onos, but Vulcan is a legitimate name if they only name planets and asteroids as Roman and Greek gods. Perhaps that will change when they start naming planets from a different system (I don't know if they have already started to do so, I'm going to check it).

I am just disappointed nobody suggested to name it Qo'noS. Shattner suggested Romulas, but that name was already taken.

They could name it Delta Vega.  Apparently, you can put something with that name anywhere.  :hyst:

Delta Vega would have been ideal for the other moon as according to the movie, Delta Vega and Vulcan are close together.

By convention, the name has to come from either Roman or Greek mythology which both Romulus and Vulcan do.
I'm fairly certain however that Qo'noS does not  ;)

Despite the polls, I wouldn't be surprised if the powers-that-be ultimately decide to give it a name more astronomically appropriate.

Well Kronos was Zeus's father, the youngest of the titans, so it definately has the Greek connection.

That won't happen,  since Delta Vega, by convention, is a body associated with the star Vega. JJ's astronomy is, um, wrong by any measure.

Give credit where credit is due.  Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are the ones who decided to put Delta Vega in the Vulcan system.  (no lie, they actually thought Trekkies would like it)  JJ had likely never even heard of Detla Vega before they put that into the script.  :P  So, if you let those guys name Pluto's moons, they can apparently name them whatever they want.  Fortunately, though, NASA will be doing the final naming and they'll handle things more logically than that.  ;)

Despite being the poll winner, the name "Vulcan" was rejected by the IAU on the grounds that it has been used elsewhere in astronomy and is not sufficiently associated with the mythology of Pluto (the ruler of the underworld).

They went instead for the names that came second and third in the poll: "Kerberos" and "Styx".

In other news, a new moon was discovered to orbit Neptune today. - Just when you think we know everything about our solar system, something comes up to surprise us. I wonder what else is out there to be discovered? - And if we still don't have an accurate count of even the bodies in our own solar system, what must be awaiting discovery in the countless other solar systems in our galaxy?

So... why do they make us loose our time voting in a poll when they completelly ignore the winner?
