If you could rename our moon, what would you name it? People across the world have suggestions.
More than 1,500 unique names from nearly 30 countries and six continents were collected in the Name the Moon social media campaign which took place earlier this year. Now, experts and enthusiasts have narrowed down the list to a dozen to be voted upon at www.namethemoon.world.
“Other moons in the solar system have names like Ganymede, Titan, Bianca and Belinda, and they’re the same names in every language,” Tawni Henderson, Name the Moon spokesperson. “The most beautiful moon in the solar system—our moon, which is currently named after its classification—also deserves one unique name.”
The top twelve names are listed below.
