For Inuit group of satellites i propose the name Amajurjuk, after the mythical ogress with a large cloak who steals children and places them in space on her back formed of driftwood or in a dorsal pouch. Image by Wayne Reynolds.

I named a moon of Jupiter! Me and 15 other folks suggested 'Eirene' back in the spring, and the IAU confirmed it today for Jovian moon S/2003 J5. Thanks for doing science outreach, it was super fun to get involved! 🚀
