(CNN) — Three astronomers have announced a campaign to pick the name for a large minor planet in our solar system. 

The astronomical body was discovered in 2007. At the time, it was given the identified 2007 OR10, but it was never given a moniker. 

The International Astronomical Union usually names planets, but this time, the group has selected three options for you to vote on.  

The names are: 

1) Gonggong 

2) Holle 

3) Vili 

All three names are associated with mythological creatures and figures. 

Vote for your favorite HERE. Voting ends May 10.
