Pluto

Pluto Roman god of the underworld, brother of Zeus and Neptune, from L. Pluto, from Gk. Plouton "god of wealth," lit. "wealth, riches," probably originally "overflowing," from PIE *pleu- "to flow" (see PLUVIAL (Cf. pluvial)). The planet (since downgraded) was discovered 1930 by C.W. Tombaugh; Minerva also was suggested as a name for it. The cartoon dog first appeared in Walt Disney's "Moose Hunt," released April 1931.
