        The names of the planets of our solar system come from Roman gods whose attributes were identified with the planet now bearing their name. Roman gods were often derivative of Greek gods with similar attributes.  Roman, Greek and Mesopotamian-Babylonian mythology names for the planet-gods are given below. This Greek mythology Pictures and Stories page and much of this 550-page website are excerpted from You and the Universe, a personalized fine art book on astrology, mythology and astronomy through which the recipient's complete astrological reading is woven.
