    Next thing you know, they’ll say “Dwarf Planets” should NOT have moons.

    I like Gyro! And if Pluto is no longer a planet, who cares what we call its moons?

    If Dr. Mel keeps rejecting his suggestions, Brewster could always show him a different moon!

    A planet is just a planet, but Pluto is a dwarf planet, a TNO, and a plutino! Even mere asteroids can have named moons. E.g., Romulus and Remus are moons of 87 Sylvia.

    But they’re not really moons if they just share the same orbit as Pluto, right? Pluto’s not big enough to have any moons, whether you treat it as a full planet or a dwarf planet.

    As an old dude, I am of the opinion that any unnamed Moon should be called Keith.
    Yup, Keith Moon. That’s my answer and I’m sticking to it.

    Pluto is big enough, and they do orbit it. The number of moons in close orbit to Pluto indicate that Pluto may have a ring system..

    If rings are confirmed around Pluto, I wonder how the dwarfers will explain how it still means it’s not a planet.

    Perhaps you are referring to the fact that Pluto’s largest moon Charon, with about a ninth the mass of Pluto, is big enough that the two objects orbit a center of mass that is outside Pluto, although close to it. So some call Pluto-Charon a binary dwarf planet, although calling Charon a moon still seems to be more common. Hydra, Nix, and the two bodies needing names are much smaller than Charon. I’ve never seen them called anything besides moons. Pluto is much larger than any of the asteroids, many of which are described as having moons.
