Why are a few things in our universe named after chocolate?
Like the title says, why are a few things in our universe named after chocolate?
For example, there are the Milky Way, galaxy and Mars.
Is there a reason for this or not? Or is it that the chocolates were named after them?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not a real question
None of these things were named after chocolate.
The name comes from a Greek myth, at the end of which Hera - Zeus' wife - spills her breast milk. In places where the sky has not been affected by light pollution, the Milky Way looks like a milky-white streak. Hence the name.
The Greek word γαλαξίας (galaxias) is closely tied to the Milky Way (because, for a long, long time, other galaxies were considered nebulae - "island universes"). It's English translation is "milky one" - a nod to the same Greek myth.
The chocolate of the same name was introduced in 1960.
Mars was a Roman god, not a Greek one (his Greek equivalent is Ares, I think). The name dates back for millennia - indeed, the Greeks associated Ares with the planet.
The chocolate of the same name was introduced in 1932.
The Greek equivalent for Mars is indeed Arès, hence the name of the two Mars' satellites. Phobos and Deimos were the two horses of Arès ;)
