List of adjectivals and demonyms of astronomical bodies

The adjectival forms of the names of astronomical bodies are not always easily predictable. Attested adjectival forms of the larger bodies are listed below, along with non-obvious derivations of some smaller bodies; in some cases these are accompanied by their demonymic equivalents, which denote purported inhabitants of these bodies.

For Classical (Greco-Roman) names, the adjectival form is normally derived from the genitive case, which may differ from the nominative case used in English for the noun form. For instance, for a large portion of names ending in -s, the genitive and therefore the adjective changes the -s to a -d, -t, or -r, as in Isis–Isidian and Ceres–Cererian;[note 1] occasionally an -n has been lost from the noun form, and reappears in the adjective, as in Pluto–Plutonian and Atlas–Atlantean.[note 2]

Many of the more recent or more obscure names are only attested in mythological or literary contexts, rather than in specifically astronomical contexts. Forms ending in -ish or -ine, such as "Puckish", are not included below if a derivation in -an is also attested. Rare forms, or forms only attested with spellings not in keeping with the IAU-approved spelling (such as c for k), are shown in italics.

Note on pronunciation

The suffix -ian is always unstressed: that is, /iən/. The related suffix -ean has traditionally been stressed, that is, /ˈən/; but in practice it is often pronounced as if it were -ian. This dichotomy should be familiar from the dual pronunciations of Caribbean as KARR-i-BEE-ən and kə-RIB-ee-ən.

  1. ^ This is reflected in Russian and Italian, where both nominal and adjectival forms derive from the genitive:
    Russian Transcription Italian English
    Плутон Pluton Plutone Pluto Plutonian
    Юнона Junona Giunone Juno Junonian
    Церера Tserera Cerere Ceres Cererian
    Атлант Atlant Atlante Atlas Atlantean
    Мимант Mimant Mimante ~ Mima Mimas Mimantean
    Паллада Pallada Pallade Pallas Palladian
    Эрида Erida Eride Eris Eridian
    Ирида Irida Iride Iris Iridian
    Метида Metida Metide ~ Meti Metis Metidian
    Фетида Fetida Tetide ~ Teti Thetis Thetidian
    Изида Izida Iside ~ Isi Isis Isidian
    Эрот Erot (Eros) Eros Erotian

    (Italian Erote is avoided for euphemistic reasons; the alternative forms Mima, Meti, Teti, Isi are loans from the French.)

    However, in other cases the final consonant is not part of the root and so is dropped in Russian and Italian:

    Russian Transcription Italian English
    Икар Ikar Icaro Icarus Icarian
    Харибда Haribda Cariddi Charybdis Charybdian
    Ахилл Ahill Achille Achilles Achillean
    Несс Ness Nesso Nessus Nessian
    Орк Ork Orco Orcus Orcean

    This approach is not foolproof; note Italian Eros above and Russian Немесида Nemesida (Nemesis), but Italian Nemesi and English adj. Nemesian.

  2. ^ Other cases of epenthetic -n- are not original to the root, but are added to form an adjective by analogy with Plutonian, as in Callistonian for Callistoan.
