Ganymede (5,262 km), a moon of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System (larger even than Mercury)

Jupiter's moon Ganymede is a satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter.

Ganymede  A satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter. Completing an orbit in roughly seven days, Ganymede participates in a 1:2:4 orbital resonance with the moons Europa and Io, respectively.

Ganymede Enhanced:  What does the largest moon in the Solar System look like? Ganymede, larger than even Mercury and Pluto, has a surface speckled with bright young craters overlying a mixture of older, darker, more cratered terrain laced with grooves and ridges. Like Earth's Moon, Ganymede keeps the same face towards its central planet, in this case Jupiter.

Jupiter’s Moon Ganymede — Ganymede is the largest satellite in the solar system with a diameter of 3270 miles. It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and the size of Mars. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of Jupiter, it would be classified as a planet.

Ganymede...  Jupiter's largest moon, and for that matter, it is the largest moon in the Solar System.  It is slightly larger than the planet, Mercury.  Ganymede orbits Jupiter about once every week.

Ganymede, the seventh moon of Jupiter. It is the largest moon of Jupiter and in the solar system. Ganymede has a diameter of miles kilometers), larger than the planet Mercury. It is the only moon known to have a magnetic field.

Underground ocean larger than Earth’s on Ganymede moon

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has the best evidence yet for an underground saltwater ocean on Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. The subterranean ocean is thought to have more water than all the water on Earth's surface.

Ganymede, moon of Jupiter, 1610, Galileo Galilei.  Largest moon in our solar system, larger than Mercury, 3/4 size of Mars.  Would be considered a planet if it did not orbit Jupiter.  It is the only moon in our solar system to produce its own magnetic field.

Io's Laplace resonance with Europa and Ganymede.  Io is in a 2:1 mean-motion orbital resonance with Europa and a 4:1 mean-motion orbital resonance with Ganymede, completing two orbits of Jupiter for every one orbit completed by Europa, and four orbits for every one completed by Ganymede. This resonance helps maintain Io's orbital eccentricity (0.0041), which in turn provides the primary heating source for its geologic activity.
