Wouldn't it be cool if we used the Greek names for the planets, instead of the Roman ones? For some reason, I've always liked the sound of the Greek names better.

Here are the names of the planets, the sun, the moon, and some other objects:

Greek Roman

Hermes Mercury
Aphrodite Venus
Gaia Earth (Anglo-Saxon)
Ares Mars
Zeus Jupiter
Cronus Saturn
Ouranos Uranus (already Greek)
Poseidon Neptune

Helios Sun
Selene Moon

Eris (already Greek)
Hades Pluto
Demeter Ceres
Hestia Vesta
What do you think?
