I chose the name Abeona for the 2020 Mars rover because Abeona is the Roman Goddess of outward journeys. One of her jobs was to help children as they took their first steps towards exploring the world. This ties directly to our situation. We are in the early stages of space exploration, and this rover will help to guide us in our pursuit of exploring Mars. I thought to name the rover after a Roman God or Goddess because Mars itself is named after the Roman God of war. Thank you for considering my entry for the 2020 Mars rover naming competition.
