Meaning & origin of the name Neptune

The name is derived from the Latin word (nuptus) meaning - "in marriage"

Neptune (Neptūnus) was the God of water and the sea in Roman mythology and religion. He is analogous with, but not identical to, the Greek God Poseidon. In the Greek-influenced tradition, Neptune was the brother of Jupiter and Pluto, each of them presiding over one of the three realms of the universe, Heaven, Earth and the Netherworld. Depictions of Neptune in Roman mosaics, especially those of North Africa, are influenced by Hellenistic conventions.
Unlike the Greek Oceanus, titan of the world-ocean, Neptune was associated as well with fresh water. Georges Dumézil suggested that for Latins, who were not a seafaring people, the primary identification of Neptune was with freshwater springs. Like Poseidon, Neptune was worshipped by the Romans also as a God of horses, under the name Neptunus Equester, a patron of horse-racing.
