Uranus.

UR ANUS.

I know it's the name of a Greek God, but what the hell were they thinking when they named this planet?

Scientist 1: We still have to name this planet, uhuh huh...
Scientist 2: How about "Uranus"? uh huhuh huh...
Scientist 1: Yeah, sounds good, uh huhuh huh...

It's probably just an excuse for scientists to say "your anus"
What's the 7th planet from the sun? Ur anus. lololol

They were thinking in a language that is not english, perhaps?

Actually Uranus was discovered in 1781. Many if not all of the planets were taken from Greek mythology long after the down fall of their ancient civilization. And its pronounced YOOR-a-nus.


Maybe later.....

Even though discovered in 1781, it's current name wasn't employed until 1850. Before that, it was called 'Georgium Sidus', or 'Herschel'. Respectively after the English king and it's discoverer. In 1850, it was the name that Bode, a German, had earlier suggest that has been made official. And so, it's called Uranus. And even more, in ancient Greek (and most likely new Greek) It's pronounced Ouranos.

I've heard some people pronounce it "Youranis", so we can do that.

IT'S NOT PRONOUNCED 'UR-ANUS' YOU MOTHERFUCKER

It's pronounced 'Ur-An-Us'. Learn to speak.

It wasn't the name of a god. It was the name of a titan.

Back in the 1700s, when the planet was discovered and named, photography was unknown and paintings were commissioned mainly by royalty and high nobility. So up until the 1990s, there was no way to know what the scientists who named Uranus looked like. But in the 1990s, artists began painting a picture of what the unknown scientists looked like based on descriptions by their scientific colleagues.

Gentlemen (and you few ladies as well), I believe I have a picture of the heads of the scientific team that discovered Uranus.

Was Uranus the god of bodily fluids or something?
