This name generator will create 15 random names for stars based on real star names. There are not many individual stars, at least in comparison with the number of stars. Most of the stars are grouped together and have a collective name, but several individual star names also remain. Most stars have Latin or Arabic names, but some have people's names. If you do not know the star names, the names in this generator would seem very odd, but many star names are strange, if you do not believe they are derived from Latin or Arabic. The real examples in life include "Dabih," "Arkab," "Alnilam," "Mebsuta," "Pherkard" and "Schedi."
To generate another 15 random names you just have to press the button. With every click 15 new names are generated.
Star systems are not only wonderful, they're exciting, too. They hold the mystery and the intrigue that all great science fiction and space opera stories have. But a star system is a system, and not a star. It's just one part of a bigger, complicated and beautiful universe, so it shouldn't be taken lightly. And when it comes to naming a star system, you don't have to be a sci-fi writer to think of some great names.
A star system with planets around it can be very interesting. A rocky planet surrounded by an ocean of water or a planet in orbit around a brown dwarf (a star much like the sun that doesn't have its own nuclear fuel) will be fascinating to scientists studying the stars. An earth-like planet orbiting a sun-like star may make for a good stand-in as Coruscant, the city-like world seen in many Star Wars movies whose surface is encased within a single giant sphere-spanning metropolis. The planet Kepler-452b falls into this category, having a close, rocky planet orbiting a sun-like star. Of course, astronomers can't say whether or not a planet like Kepler-452b would even be habitable, much less have the potential for life. But if it's rocky and has a moon, then it would be an ideal place for a colony of settlers to call home.
What about a star system with no stars, but instead a series of stars called a cluster? A star cluster is composed of many stars that orbit one another in what is known as a binary system. An example of a star cluster is the "H-Star" series, which includes the stars HD 106906 and HD 140658. Because this kind of system contains a series of stars orbiting one another and not one star alone, it is called a cluster. Other examples of star cluster systems include Betelgeuse, the first star to be discovered with telescopes, and the Triangulum, a collection of stars in the constellation Cygnus.
