Makes me wonder why they named him after the smallest planet (at the time, of course... ) since he's not exactly small.
Pluto wasn't named after the planet. He was named after the Roman god of death.

Aaaah, I wasn't thinking about this! Good one! [/QUOTE]
I love greek and roman mythology its kind of my second choice going through school. But its okay that you didn't figure that. Not a lot of people know that the planets were discovered by Romans and thus named after there highest gods

It was meant to deface him. As part of his defacement he was also named after the one who was farthest from the rest.
