136108 Haumea is a Sol system dwarf planet.

There is some debate over who first discovered Haumea, but its existence was made public in late-July 2005.

Haumea is named after the Hawai'ian goddess of fertility and childbirth. It has a ring and at least two natural moons, 136108 Haumea I Hi‘iaka and 136108 Haumea II Namaka (both named after daughters of the Hawai'ian goddess Haumea).
