This name generator gives you 15 random names for quasars. Quasars are regions with a much higher luminosity, which are not produced by stars at the centers of galaxies. They are among the brightest and most powerful objects in the universe, because they have produced a thousand times more energy than our whole Milky Way, which contains between 200 and 400 billion stars. However, there are still a lot of quasars to be discovered and only a handful were found and named with proper names, since the most common code is based on their position. The names are: Quasar Twin, Quasar Triple, Cloverleaf, and Cross Einstein. The names in this generator are based on these four names, but we took creative freedom to expand somewhat on them, for scientific purposes in some cases.

The word quasar actually is an acronym for the following: Quasi-stellar Radio Source; Quasars Are the Brightest Places to Listen to Radio Astronomy. These stars are so bright because of their very high speeds. They're believed to be a few light-years away from earth. Quasars can be seen with the naked eye, but most of them are difficult to detect because they are very far away, and their light varies so greatly due to atmospheric conditions.
Quasars also differ in color from our view. Although there are several colors that they appear, the most popular colors are red, blue, orange, green, violet, and white. Sometimes, however, they will appear in more than one color, such as black and white. Their size ranges between one million to ten million light years in diameter. The largest known quasar was seen by the NASA/ESA Swift satellite in 2020.
When we hear about these stars, it's generally because they're a very important part of our daily lives. Some of the most exciting times when this type of star is mentioned are when astronomers try to pinpoint its location with great success. There have been many searches since 1930, and they have yet to find another quasar quite like the one at the center of our Solar System. Because it is so rare, they call it a mystery star.
