Orthosie

Orthosie is a member of the Ananke group, a family of Jovian satellites which have similar orbits and are therefore thought to have a common origin. The group probably began as an asteroid that was captured by Jupiter's gravity and then suffered a collision which broke off a number of pieces. The largest remaining chunk was named "Ananke," and the smaller pieces became the other 15 moons in the Ananke group

Originally called S/2001 J9, Orthosie was named for one of the Horae, who were daughters of Jupiter and Themis, a Titaness, in Roman mythology. Orthosie means luck


Helike

Originally called S/2003 J6, Helike was named for one of the Muses, who were daughters of Zeus, the Greek equivalent of the Roman god Jupiter. Helike is also the name of a nymph in Greek mythology who helped to nurse Zeus and was transferred to the stars as a reward. There, she became the constellation, the Great Bear

Helike was discovered on Feb. 6, 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard at the Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii


Praxidike

Originally called S/2000 J7, Praxidike was named for the Greek goddess of justice or punishment. She was the mother of Klesios, Harmonia and Arete by Zeus, the Greek equivalent of the Roman god Jupiter
