Why does Russia have a nuclear missile named "Satan II"?

Or at least NATO called it that. The Russian RS-28 Sarmat missile is nicknamed "Satan 2"

    You'd have to ask the people at NATO who assigned the names to all Soviet weapons. All Soviet ICBMs have a NATO reporting name that begins with the letter S.

    Because they tried naming a missile “God I” and it couldn't get off the ground.
