When you hear Jupiter, you immediately think of the enormous planet in our solar system. But, along the sandy beaches of the northwestern part of Palm Beach County in Florida, lies a beautiful beach town called Jupiter. So why was it named Jupiter? Did the ancient roman god of light and sky have a hand in the founding of the town? It is uncertain how the town got its name but it was thought that the Spaniards had named it Jobe (HO-bay) which means Indians because of a nearby Native American village. Then the British changed it to Jove (Latin), the Roman name of Zeus, who is also known as Jupiter.
