    I didn’t know April was named after Venus. How does that work?

    A festival in honor of Venus was held on April 1st, leading some scholars to conjecture that the Roman month of Aprilis was originally Aphrilis, derived from her Greek name Aphrodite (Aphros), or possibly from her Etruscan name Apru.

    The 10-month Roman Calendar was lunar and woefully inaccurate by the time both Caesar and Augusted added the eponymous months.

    Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, her Veneralia being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name Apru.

    I’m relieved nobody’s mentioned Uranus.

    Oops.

    Two prototype Sega Plutos recently surfaced, but seeing as Pluto is no longer a full planet I guess that doesn’t count.
