Re: Help name the moons of Pluto

Interesting that in both your languages both nouns are female. In German, Earth is female but the moon is male =)
And while in Italian (and in French, too, I believe) the sun is male, our German one is female
I think there are symbolic reasons why one would associate the moon with the female gender, but maybe it's just my linguistic bias showing.
