Factual disputesEdit

Moved the following comment from dab page (I could not determine whether or not this is an actual factual dispute; the contradictory note in the article—which I removed to here—makes it appear so):

There is no minor planet, asteroid, comet, or planet officially named Hades.

Please resolve this dispute here, and modify dab page as needed.

In Greek mythology, Hades was the name of (A) the god of the dead and/or (B) the abode of the dead. The Roman name for Hades was Pluto, therefore, the planet Pluto may inaccurately be called Hades.
