Pluto Meaning and Origin

Pluto is a boy’s name of Roman origin, meaning “god of the underworld, rich.” In ancient Roman mythology, Pluto was the god of the underworld. He was the counterpart to the Greek god Hades. According to mythology, Pluto ruled over the realm of the dead and was responsible for judging the souls of the deceased. He was often depicted as a stern and bearded figure holding a scepter and wearing a helmet that rendered him invisible. The name “Pluto” is derived from the Greek word “Ploutōn,” which means “wealth” or “riches,” symbolizing the precious minerals found underground. Pluto is also the name of a dwarf planet in our solar system. It was discovered on February 18, 1930, by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh. For many years, Pluto was considered the ninth planet in our solar system until its reclassification as a dwarf planet by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in 2006. Pluto is also the name of a beloved cartoon character created by Walt Disney Productions. Pluto made his first appearance in 1930 and became one of Disney’s most iconic characters. He is Mickey Mouse’s pet dog and is known for his playful and loyal nature.
