Literature moons

Did you know that all known Uranus moons (there are currently 27 of them) are named after characters from the works of William Shakespeare and Alexander Pope. Some of them can be spotted from Earth using telescope or pictured as well, but most have been discovered during Voyager 2 flyby.
Last night I turned telescope to Uranus for a moment and tried to picture them.
