Doublet of Dyaus Pita.

Proper noun

Jupiter

  1. (astronomy) The fifth and by far the largest planet in the Solar System, a gas giant, represented by the symbol in astronomy. Jupiter is known for its Great Red Spot and many moons including the Galilean moons.
  2. (Roman mythology) The King of the Gods, also called Jove. Equivalent to the Greek Zeus, Jupiter was one of the children of Saturn. As supreme god of the Roman pantheon, Jupiter was the god of thunder, lightning, and storms, and appropriately called the god of light and sky.
    • Jove definition
      Jupiter, god of the sky.

Usage notes

The planet Jupiter takes the adjectival form Jovian, and not *Jupiterian. The planet's demonym is also Jovian.
