  Hyperion
In Greek mythology Hyperion was a Titan, the son of Gaea and Uranus and the father of Helios.
Hyperion is unique in that it is very irregularly shaped, has a highly eccentric orbit, and is near another large moon (Titan).
Hyperion's odd rotation probably accounts for the fact that Hyperion's surface is more or less uniform, in contrast to many of Saturn's other moons which have distinctly different leading and trailing hemispheres.
