Nicknames for the Planets?

Answer

Nicknames for the planets can help you remember them. Some nicknames for the planets are Venus is the morning and evening star. The Earth is known as Mother Earth, Mars is the red planet, and Saturn is the ringed planet. Pluto is a character on Disney, so it can be remembered as Disney's planet. Jupiter is very large, so one can call it the giant planet, and Mercury is the swift planet because it is fast. Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. The names of the planets are from Greek or Roman mythology. The tradition was kept for Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto as they were discovered in modern times.
