Who won’t love having a star that is named after them.  There are many organizations located on the internet that advertise:

Universal Star Catalog

When you are trying to decide which company to use you should check to see if they have use of the Universal Star Catalog’s database that has the stars designed by number, and are found as well as cataloged by the well-known Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.  Each star should be copyrighted together with its precise coordinates that allows the recipient of the star, family, friends are anyone now or in future generations will be able to find that named star and where it is in the sky.

Twin stars

Some of the organizations will allow you to buy twin stars that are near each other for someone you love or married or engaged to.

International Astronomical Union

The International Astronomical Union is the only organization that is authorized to name stars, but you can unofficially buy a star and give it a special name.  You or the person you bought the gift for will get a certificate stating the name of that star as well as a chart that is astrological showing where the star with the special name is located.


These gifts are perfect for occasions such as:

  • Birth of grandchild;
  • Graduation;
  • Anniversary gift;
  • Birthday gift;
  • Wedding gift.

Star naming services

Star naming services don’t really offer officially-recognized star names.  And you will not actually own that star; so you should carefully think about how much you are willing to pay for the novelty of naming or buying the star is worth to you.  That means research all these services.

Use Google to help find these star naming services.
