Say hello to Frank, the latest cosmic discovery

Link to article at
There's mighty Jupiter, dubbed after the paramount god of Roman mythology. Pluto, whose name was inspired by the god of the underworld. Mercury, its title bestowed in honor of the winged messenger.

Then there's Frank.

The oddball name has been temporarily given to Saturn's 60th moon, the European Space Agency (ESA) said here on Friday.
What the heck?

Why do they consider Frank an "oddball name", when neighboring moons are Methone and Pallene?

- Frank :-)
