Provisional moons with the name they are designated when they are first discoverd. Once a reliable orbit has been calculated, they recieve their permenant names.

Saturns Moons

Mimas is the smallest and innermost of Saturn's major moons. It onlt takes it 23 hours to orbit the massive planet that is Saturn once

Pandora is coated in a fine dust of icy material. Even the craters on Pandora are coated in debris. it helps organize the particles of Saturn's F ring into a distinct ring. It is only about 84 km. across and is shaped like a potatoe.

Phoebe and Iapetus are the only major moons in the Saturnian system that do not orbit closely to the plane of Saturn's equator.Unlike most major moons orbiting Saturn, Phoebe is very dark and reflects only 6 percent of the sunlight it receives. Its darkness and irregular, retrograde orbit suggest Phoebe is most likely a captured object.

Titan is the biggest of the 53 known moons orbiting Saturn. It is a cold world enclosed by an atmosphere so thick telescopes and cameras alike can't penetrate through it.

Methone, a tiny 3-km (2-mile) diameter moon orbits between Mimas and Enceladus. Methone orbits Saturn in 24 hours. The three tiny moons, Methone, Pallene and Anthe, all orbit at very similar distances from Saturn -- they are in a dynamical relationship.
