This has been a long time coming as the nameless planet was discovered 10 years ago!

The names are all associated with mythological creatures. They are Gonggong, a Chinese water god known for creating chaos, causing flooding, and tilting the Earth. Holle is a European winter goddess of fertility, rebirth, and women. The third nominee is Vili, a Nordic deity who helped defeat the frost giant Ymir and used Ymir's body to create the universe
