English[edit]

Uranus planetary symbol
Uranus planetary symbol (H monogram)

Etymology[edit]

From Latin Ūranus, from Ancient Greek Οὐρανός (Ouranós), from οὐρανός (ouranós, sky, heaven)

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (file)
  • (Received Pronunciation) IPA(key): /ˈjʊɹənəs/, /jʊˈɹeɪnəs/
  • (US) IPA(key): /ˈjʊɹənəs/, /juˈɹeɪnəs/, /əɹˈɑnəs/
  • Rhymes: -ʊɹənəs, -eɪnəs
  • By the rules of Latin accentuation, the stress would fall on the first syllable because the "a" is short. The pronunciation with a stress on the second syllable is sometimes avoided today because of the homophony with your anus.[1]
