What does Pluto mean?

[ 2 syll. plu-to, pl-uto ] The baby boy name Pluto is pronounced in English as PLUW-Tow †. Pluto is used chiefly in the Dutch, English, Finnish, German, and Scandinavian languages. It is derived from Old Greek origins. It is derived from the word 'ploutos' meaning wealth. Pluto (Latin) is an original form of Pluto. The name was borne in Roman mythology by the god of the underworld, the counterpart of the Greek Hades; the ninth planet from the sun was named after the Greek god as the dark and cold planet resembles the underworld. In Greek mythology, the name was borne by a nymph also known as Plouto; she was the mother of Tantalus by Zeus.

Plutão (Portuguese), Pluton (French), Plutone (Italian), and Plutón (Spanish) are variants of Pluto.
