According to the IAU (International Astronomical Union) Saturn, which is the sixth planet from the sun has

"18 known moons that have received officially sanctioned names."

The most famous of the moons of Saturn is Titan. Most of the moons which revolve around Saturn are mostly made up of ice with only about 30% rock.

"Voyager 1 revealed that Titan may have seas of liquid methane bordered by organic tarlike matter. Titan's thick blanket of orange clouds, however, prevent a direct view of the surface."
