Plus, Uranus is Greek, not Roman. The Roman name is Caelus.

That's not really true. The Romans were heavily influenced by the Greek, from the first century BC. Thus I think that Caelus has been replaced by (or merged with) Uranus. Anyway, that name is a latin transcription of Ouranos. All planets have been given Roman names by the way (except in Greek).

I never understood why they called the planet "Uranus" instead of "Ouranos". It's not that much harder to pronounce...

The name was suggested by a German fellow, and in German, the U is pronounced like Ou. Why that was the variant to sustain? Good question. It problably just made more sense then 'George' or 'Herschel', which were other suggestions at the time.

are the Sabine Women really mythology? I would have guessed a made up story but that doesn't make it mythology

The Sabines were a real neighboring tribe of the Romans, so their inclusion in the list seems odd to me too.

If memory serves, much of Roman history before the Gallic sack in the 4th century B.C. has no historical evidence because the records were destroyed. So really, much of early Roman history is handed down from myths, the abduction of the Sabine Woman included.

Isn't Jupiter's dad Kronos? In Greek mythology Zeus is the son of Chronos, so I thought the same would be true for Roman mythology.

Kronos (not Chronos, the personification of time. Different guy altogether) is Zeus’s father in Greek mythology. Saturn is the Roman equivalent of Kronos, so you’d say that instead of Kronos when asked about Jupiter, as opposed to Zeus.
