In roman mythology, pluto is the god of the underworld. the planet received this name perhaps because it's so far from the sun that it is in perpetual darkness and perhaps because PL are the initials of percival Lowell. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by a fortunate accident. Calculations which later turned out to be in error had predicted a planet beyond Neptune, based on the motions of Uranus and Neptune. Not knowing of the error, Clyde W. Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Arizona did a very careful sky survey which turned up pluto anyway.
