Star name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random names for stars based on names given to real stars.

Not many individual stars are given names, at least in comparison to how many stars there are. Most stars will be grouped together and receive a group name, but there are still plenty of individual star names around.
Most star names are derived from either Latin or Arabic, but some are named after people. The names in this generator will seem rather odd if you're not familiar with star names, but a lot of star names are odd if you don't consider they've been derived from Latin or Arabian. Some real life examples are "Dabih", "Arkab", "Alnilam", "Mebsuta", "Pherkard", "Schedi" and "Taygeta" to name just a few.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
