- Named for Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), an Italian poet.
- This farside name was introduced in Menzel, 1971 where it is noted that Dante's writings include "a journey through the eight concentric spheres of the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Fixed Stars."
- Is Menzel's name Dante in some way related to Riccioli's discontinued name Dantes? (see page 212 in Ewen A. Whitaker's Mapping and Naming the Moon).- DannyCaes Jul 1, 2013
