Move over Pluto, "The Goblin" is the hot new ice world

quote [ An extremely distant dwarf planet, named The Goblin, has been discovered. Astronomers made the discovery while hunting for a hypothetical massive planet, known as Planet Nine, that is suspected to be in orbit far beyond Pluto in a mysterious region known as the Oort Cloud. The Goblin appears to be under the gravitational influence of a giant unseen object, adding to astronomers’ certainty that it is out there. “We believe there are thousands of dwarf planets in the distant solar system. We are just seeing the tip of the iceberg right now.” ]

For the official name they should go with Jareth.
