Moon of Orcus needs a name!

Gamer Life General Discussion

Completely off topic, but I saw at the NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day that not only is there a dwarf planet named Orcus (photo and Wikipedia), but that it has a moon and the discoverer is asking people to suggest names.

I'm sure Necromancer fans can come up with a good one to mass suggest. :)

To get the ball rolling, I guest either "Rod" (appropriate but not very moon-like), or Tenebrous (sorry, big Modron March fan).

I know the rest of you can do better. So what do you have?

Liberty's Edge

Pun Pun!!!


No, wait -- Yuggoth. Yuggoth is the perfect name.

Clark. The perfect name for a satellite of Orcus.

Well, we'd need to get the mass naming votes in before Colbert gets wind of it... beat me Yoda, although I was going to go with Peterson.
Necromancer would also be good.


Rappan Athuk?

How about Horkos, who was a Greek daemon that served as the inspiration for Orcus, or Tarquinia, after the Italian town which supposedly is the site of Orcus' tomb.

Well, to go with the mythological geekery, if Orcus has a moon, by all rights it should be Libitina.

Logue :)
