How did the constellation Capricorn get its name?

The word Capricornus is taken from Latin and means "goat horn" or "goat horns." Capricornus was given the name Suhurmasu about 1000 BCE ("The Goat Fish"). The constellation was later connected with the winter solstice and became the sign of Ea (Enki). In ancient Egypt, Enki was the name of a god who lived in the waters near the city of Eridu.

Another term for Capricorn is "fish tail." This refers to the shape of the constellation which looks like a fish's tail when viewed from Earth.

Finally, some say the name Capricorn comes from the Greek kapiros, which means "goat." This makes sense since goats are associated with Phoenicia, where part of Capricorn lies.

However, there is another story about the name of this constellation.
