Urania was the goddess of a different kind of love to Aphrodite; Aphrodite was goddess of romantic and sexual love, Uranis was goddess of brotherly, universal love for other members of the human race.

Too close to uranium to me, although the Greek version, Ourania, is really pretty. The one "o" makes a big difference to me. :)
