The moons of Saturn are visible to some 'naked eyes', and can be seen to appear and disappear, which gave rise in ancient times to the myth of Saturn eating his children. Obviously, these moons were not seen as Moons, like our own Luna.

There is one sun and one moon, but many planets, so the planets received names to distinguish them.

It's the same with many other things like the Milky Way. If there is only one of them (or at least it is identified as being the only one at the time) then they get "the".

According to watching the F.A. cup semi-final it's Spurs, the Spurs or you Spurs.

Blondie (aka Clint) in 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' hated Tottenham Hotspur.

When in his hotel room, he shot three men who had opened the door. His reason;

'You're Spurs'.

Except Cruithne isn't a moon, of Earth or anywhere else. It's an asteroid that happens to be in orbital resonance with the Earth. Apparently this state of affairs will exist for only the next 5000 years or so.
