Astronomy Science ~ A new planet need a name - but what would be named if we discover a new planet in our solar system?

Planet often named for the Roman gods and goddesses, so it can be assumed that another world is found in our solar system will also be named after them as well. Individuals who make the final decision to name a planet or other celestial object is a member of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) - a group of professional astronomers who are currently engaged in astronomy research and educational.

But it is very unlikely we will find a new world that is larger than Pluto in our solar system. Using the telescope, scientists have found many objects that are not large enough to achieve status as a full planet. The objects known as Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) or Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) and they are named after deities of various cultures in the world. Objects larger than the Kuiper objects and TNOs into the category of dwarf planets, like Pluto, whose status is derived from the planet in 2006.
