Distribution of named craters in the Solar System as of 2017.[1][2][3][4][a]

This is a list of craters on Venus, named by the International Astronomical Union's (IAU) Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature. All craters on Venus are named after famous women or female first names.[1][5] (For features on Venus other than craters see, list of montes on Venus and List of coronae on Venus.[6])
