Re: How the planets got their names

Heavenly bodies seem by naked eye were called by names & mythologies in many languages. Also the stars. It would be awesome if there was a web site gathering a lot of these.

In my ancestral language the Moon was called Iassy (Ia - our, Sy - Mother), literally "Our Mother".

The english word Jaguar comes from this language (Iaguara)

Stars were called Iassytatá (tatá - fire, so, "fires from our mother")
A lua é sempre a lua, ó, meu amor, e tanta! Mesmo se a passar por Shravana...
