Followup: Polydeuces and new Saturnian Names

Last week I reported on two new Saturnian satellite names, Narvi (an irregular outer satellite) and Polydeuces (a trailing trojan of Dione). According to the blog, the IAU has changed the spelling of three other satellite names. Suttung (S/2000 S 12) is now Suttungr. Skadi (S/2000 S 8) is now Skathi. Finally, Thrym (S/2000 S 7) is now Thrymr.
