All your questions answered about our unusual gifts

What is it star naming?

Star naming is an online service when any individual can symbolically attribute a name to star from our star catalogue. The name will be registered in our star registry and you will receive a gift certificate of attribution.

How do I name a star?

You can name a star in our star registry by purchasing one of our star gift packages (the Quick Star package, The Zodiac package or the Twin Stars package).

You will need to choose a name/names for your star(s), choose a constellation if applicable, choose a registration date, write a name of the person to whom it is dedicated and type a personal message.

What can I call a star?

You can give your star whatever name you wish. It should be between 3 and 30 characters. Please note that we will not print any kind of abusive or insulting content. If you submit abusive content we will not deliver your gift and we will not offer a refund.

Are the stars named more than once in the registry?

No, stars name named just once in our registry. With billions of stars in the universe, the star you name will be unique to you.

Is the star name recognised by astronomers?

Scientists all over the world name stars in astronomical star catalogues such as the Hipparcos catalogue. Generally, astronomers give stars numbers rather than names to make identifying them easier. Though so of the brighter stars have ancient Arabic names. Naming your star is a symbolic gesture and is not recognised by the International Astronomical Union. All the information about your star is kept only in our registry. We can’t provide any legal attribution to the stars.

What is the star naming registry?

Each time when a star is named on our website we process it and record in our star registry. EStarRegistry is a commercially-managed database in which star namings are recorded, administered and audited.

Our star registry is based on the Hipparcos catalogue. The Hipparcos is a scientific star catalogue in which all stars are numbered, we attribute a name against a number.
