List of proper names of exoplanets

Summary

Proper names of planetary systems often follow common themes – for example, the planets of the star Copernicus are named after European astronomers

Proper names for planets outside of the Solar System – known as exoplanets – are chosen by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) through public naming contests known as NameExoWorlds.

Naming

The IAU's names for exoplanets – and on most occasions their host stars – are chosen by the Executive Committee Working Group (ECWG) on Public Naming of Planets and Planetary Satellites, a group working parallel with the Working Group on Star Names (WGSN).[1] Proper names of stars chosen by the ECWG are explicitly recognised by the WGSN.[1] The ECWG's rules for naming exoplanets are identical to those adopted by the Minor Planet Center for minor planets.[2] Names are a single word consisting of sixteen characters or less, pronounceable in some language, non-offensive, and not identical to existing proper names of astronomical objects.[3] Copyrighted names, names of living individuals, and names with political or religious themes are blacklisted by the ECWG.[4] In addition, the discoverer of a planet reserves the right to reject a proposed name for it.[5]
