"Through his observations, Galileo thought Neptune was a brightly shining star, and made recordings in late December 1612 to January 1613.
In the 1840s, rivalry grew between France and England as to whom had (re-)discovered the planet and what it should be named. France's Urbain Le Verrier wanted to name it after himself while England's astronomers offered variations such as Oceanus and Janus. Le Verrier, seeing the trend, quickly changed his suggestion to "Neptune" in 1846. Soon Neptune became the internationally accepted name. In Roman mythology, Neptune was the god of the sea, identified with the Greek Poseidon. The demand for a mythological name seemed to be in keeping with the nomenclature of the other planets, all of which, except for Earth, were named for Greek and Roman mythology.
There is still a bit of controversy over the "discovery", although Galileo's carefully noted observations from four centuries ago verify he was the first to "see" Neptune from the Earth."
