Most planets in the solar system have moons named after Greek and Roman mythological figures. What planet has moons named after Shakespeare characters?

  • Mercury
  • Uranus correct

    Earth might have just one moon, but Uranus has 27. Students of Shakespeare will recognize Ophelia, Juliet and Rosalind, among others. With the high number of moons orbiting Uranus, Shakespeare isn't the only one to get naming rights. Alexander Pope also has moons named after his literary works. Source: NASA
