According to Futurama, it will one day be renamed as Urrectum.

You win, that is much better than my suggestion.

The correct pronunciation is oo (like oo in loop) rah (like the wra in wrath) nos (like nos in nostalgia), with the stress in the last syllable. For some peculiar reason it was transliterated with a us in the end.

I'll take that. That actually sounds cool. "Urine-iss" is a piss-poor pronunciation (pun intended) for such a cool planet.

It's just the original greek pronunciation (it means Sky).

by Flaviowilderman 2 weeks ago

If I'm not mistaken, it was traditionally pronounced with the stress on the first syllable.

It was always "urine-us" a lot of people just pronounced it wrong for so long people think it changed

Yeah it's a shame Uranus is a pretty cool planet but with a name like uranus it's hard to take it sireusly Only way to change that is to change the name But you can't change such an iconic name like uranus And it'll always stay uranus in our harts
