what were they thinking... are they copying this from somewhere?

where did you hear "Fortuna" before?

I know the answer.

its a name of a place in a game

first correct answer wins 100 platinum

Whatever game you're thinking of, I'm pretty sure it wasn't the place where "Fortuna" originated as a name.

They named it Fortuna for 4 possible reasons very likely, the one OP is thinking of is probably not one of them.

1. Fortuna = Godess of luck and fortune. Fits the usual naming conventions of the solar system as a whole.

2. Fortuna = Part of the Venus landscape.

3. Because Fortuna fits a Corpus settlement

4. Due to the ancient roman Venus-Fortuna cult.

O! Fortuna! / Velut Luna! / Stratu variabilis!

Semper cresis / Aut decresis / Vita detestabilis
Nunc obdurat / Et tunc curat / Ludo mentis aciem
Egenstatem / Potestatem / Dissolvit ut glaciem

Sors immanis / Et inanis / Rota tu volubilis
Status malus / Vana salus / Semper dissolubilis
Obumbrata / Et velata / Michi quoque niteris
Nunc per ludum / Dorsum nudum / Fero tui sceleris

SORS SALUTIS! / ET VIRTUTIS! / MICHI NUNC CONTRARIA!
EST AFFECTUS! / ET DEFECTUS! / SEMPER IN ANGARIA!
HAC IN HORA! / SINE MORA! / CORDE PULSUM TANGITE!
QUOD PER SORTEM! / STERNIT FORTEM!
MECUM OOOoooOOoooOOOoOOMNES PLANGITE

Side note, that trumpet part at the end of that section is a *@##$ and a half to play (it's not just 2 notes alternating).
Also yes I know there's another whole part, I just don't feel like typing it out lol

It's also an actual asteroid in our Solar System, named after that goddess.

Actually, most things named "Fortuna" were named after that goddess. So even if it's a reference to something other than the goddess, it's likely referencing something that was referencing the goddess.
