       Pluto, in roman mythology, is the God of Underworld.  In greek, it is the God, Hades.  It got its name because it is so far from the sun.  Pluto was discovered as a planet in 1930, and now is a "dwarf planet."  Pluto's satelittle, Charon, was named after for the mythological figure who ferried the dead across the River Styx into Hades.
