My head canon is to give them all names ending in -ity:

Mercury = Amity
Venus = Charity
Mars = Verity
Jupiter = Felicity
Saturn = Trinity (or Infinity)
Uranus = Unity
Neptune = Tranquility
Pluto = Serendipity

Would anybody like to explain where they got their names from? I know Princess Serenity was named after the Sea of Serenity on the moon.

I'll do it for mine:
  • Inanna (Venus): proto-Sumerian, and later Sumerian and Akkadian (Babylonian), goddess of love, war, fertility, and anything she managed to steal from other gods' portfolios. While not the queen of the gods her name means "queen of heaven", and when she makes demands the other gods fulfill them because they know she can break their collective asses, with the only exception, Ereshkigal, being her older twin and ruler of the Netherworld (and likely was originally an aspect of Inanna that got split off as that religion evolved). Associated to the planet Venus, the Akkadians worshipped her as Ishtar, and she was the prototype for the Phoenician goddess Astarte, and through her many similar divinities around the Mediterranean Sea including Aphrodite and Venus.
  • Iris (Mercury): Greek goddess of the rainbow and the seas (plus a few other things) and messenger of the gods.
  • Badb (Mars): Irish Celtic goddess of war and carnage, mostly appearing to the mortals as a crow to anticipate bloody battles. Also a deliverer of prophecies.
  • Rauni (Jupiter): uncertain figure in Finnish mythology associated with Ukko, the god of thunder. May have been a mother goddess and consort of Ukko, the personification of the rowan three, or another name for Ukko.
  • Persephone (Saturn): daughter of Zeus and Demetra (who are siblings) and bride of Hades (brother of her parents), she's the formidable queen of the underworld and goddess of vegetation, rebirth and fertility.
  • Hathor (Uranus): Egyptian goddess of the sky and a few other things, including FEMININITY. As one of the goddesses incarnating the Eye of Ra, she's someone who could wipe out humanity in two days-and actually came very close to do just that in the myth known as "Destruction of Humanity" (the other gods noticed in time and made a literal lake of blood-red beer, that the goddess, having a taste for blood in the previous day, proceeded to drink until the drunkenness calmed her down).
  • Namaka (Neptune): Hawaiian goddess of the sea, and elder sister of Pele, goddess of volcanoes.
  • Moira (Pluto): singular of Moirai, the Greek goddesses that in English are known as the Fates... Who happen to be the daughters of Chronos (the Primordial god of flowing time, to not be mistaken for Cronus, the Titan god of harvest. Hence the scythe). And guess who Chibiusa says is Sailor Pluto's father?

As I said, I started off with wanting to use words ending in -ity as my naming convention:

Mercury = Amity = Ami + ity. Also, perhaps because "ami" is the French word for friend, I've always especially associated Ami with friendship.

Venus = Charity = In mythology, the Charities or Graces were daughters of Aphrodite/Venus and minor goddesses of charm and beauty.

Mars = Verity = I've always felt that Mars was the most straightforward and honest, so this seemed an appropriate choice. (Veracity or Sincerity could work as well.)

Jupiter = Felicity = Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, and Sagittarians are generally noted for their happy, easygoing demeanors, so this seemed appropriate.

Saturn = Trinity (or Infinity) = Since Saturn is awakened by the three talismans coming together, calling her "Trinity" seemed suitable. "Infinity," an obvious reference to the arc in which she is introduced, also seemed fitting. "Necessity," after the Greco-Roman personification of fate, is another possibility (also suitable for Pluto).

Uranus = Unity = Not gonna lie, by this point I was running out of suitable -ity words. "Uranus" starts with a "u." "Unity" starts with a "u." I called it a day.

Neptune = Tranquility = An apt way of describing seas, oceans, water in general, and thus seemed appropriate.

Pluto = Serendipity = As the Sailor Soldier of Time, I thought giving her a name that means happy coincidence would be cute. Also, it's sort of similar to "Serenity," and after all, we all know Pluto wouldn't mind trading places with her so she could get Mamoru all to herself ;)
