'Georgian star' (Georgium sidus) after King George III,


Yeah, I know.  Personally I don't have a problem with Uranus having it's current name.  Said name refers to the Greek god of the sky and is consistent with how the other planets are named, except for Earth.   Since the names of planets & moons in our Solar System come from mythology, mostly Greek & Roman.  There are some exceptions such as Earth, the Moon (since most don't call her Luna, Selene, or Diana), and Uranus' moons, which are named from characters from some of Shakespeare's plays.
