To name a star, start by choosing a star from an online star registry, like the International Astronomical Union. Then, purchase a star package, which typically costs between $30 to $100, depending on the merchandise. Once you pay for your package, you’ll be prompted to type in your star’s name. If you’re not sure what to name your star, name it after someone in your life as a special gift to that person. Alternatively, choose a name from ancient mythology, like Andromeda and Draco. For an official name, try coming up with a name based on the star’s size and constellation, like Alpha Orionis for the largest star in the Orion constellation.
