I'm naming certain planetary systems I found procedurally. If you put a name down below, I will apply it to either a dwarf moon if you post a name down below, a moon if the name is acceptional, or if I really love the name, a planet




The Terra Hunter of the Milky Way!

(By the way, I was born in 2001, NOT 1972 XD)

Wouldn't it be better for object names to be somehow related to or inspired by the object itself? Why not post a picture of the dwarf moon for people to see. smile

I have enough trouble naming my own discoveries! And I'm only naming worlds I find with life. Or if it's a moon, I still name the parent world and call the moon the parent name plus its number -- i.e Aristotle 4 or some such.

I've used Wikipedia for lists of writers, poets, composers, artists, philosophers, mythological names, statesmen, etc. Running out of those, I may create a random syllable name generator in Excel, or just use one of the many available on the web, or just open a book and choose syllables at random until I get something that sounds cool: Worlong, Replar, Nassen, Kedimere. It's fun and easy. (I haven't used any of the above names, if anyone likes them -- not that it would matter if I had used them. The universe is BIG!)
