They join Charon, Nix, and Hydra.

The planet has five known moons altogether.

That is totally bogus. Styx just isn't the same without Dennis DeYoung.

REO Speedwagon, Journey, Foreigner, or Cheap Trick would have been

Awesome. Rename Nix "Stevie Nicks" and the new moons "Rhiannon" and "Landslide."
