IAU100 NameExoWorlds Contest

Naming Rules


If you are curious about the normal naming process for celestial bodies, please check out the IAU webpage dedicated exclusively to this topic. The following rules apply specifically to the IAU100 NameExoWorlds project:

The proposed names should be of things, people, or places of long-standing cultural, historical, or geographical significance, worthy of being assigned to a celestial object.

Although not necessary, the names may be drawn from themes related to the sky and astronomy, or related in some way to the constellation or a cultural asterism in which the exoplanetary system lies.

Two (2) names should be proposed - one (1) for the exoplanet and one (1) for the star it orbits.

The two names should follow a common naming theme. The naming theme describing how the names are related in some logical way should be summarized in a sentence or two, and be broad enough that additional names could be drawn from the literature to name additional objects in that exoplanetary system in the future (e.g. additional planets which might be discovered, additional stellar companions). Example: Rivers of country XYZ. Fictional lands in 19th century stories from country XYZ, etc.

Proposed names, after translation, should be:

  • Between 4 and 16 characters in length in Latin alphabet (including spaces or punctuation)
  • Preferably one word.
  • Pronounceable (in some language)

Not identical to, or too similar to, an existing name of an astronomical object. Names already assigned to astronomical objects can be checked using these links:

In addition, proposed names may not be:

  • Names of a purely or principally commercial nature.
  • Names of individuals, places or events principally known for political, military or religious activities.
  • Names of individuals that died less than a century ago (1919).
  • Names of living individuals.
  • Names of organizations related to the selection.
  • Names of pet animals.
  • Contrived names (i.e. new, invented).
  • Acronyms.
  • Names that include numbers or punctuation marks (diacritics are acceptable).
  • Names that are principally known as trademarks or protected by intellectual property claims.

All proposed names should be accompanied by a citation explaining the name of no more than 100 words (after translation into English)

The selected public names will be recognized by the IAU as the appropriate publically used name for the object(s). It is understood that the selected public names will not replace the scientific alphanumeric designations.

The proposed names will be published as such, along with due credit to the proposers that proposed it.

This public name may then be used internationally along with, or instead of, the scientific designation, permanently and without restrictions.

100 000s of People from 110+ Countries Select Names for Exoplanet Systems In Celebration of IAU’s 100th Anniversary

On 17 December 2019 the names of 110+ sets of exoplanets and host stars named in the IAU100 NameExoWorlds campaigns were announced at a press conference in Paris (France). Within the framework of the International Astronomical Union’s 100th anniversary commemorations (IAU100) in 2019, 110+ countries organised national campaigns that stimulated the direct participation of over 780 000 people worldwide, who proposed and selected names for each exoplanet and its host star.

The IAU100 NameExoWorlds project saw massive and widespread participation around the world, as the public eagerly engaged in this exciting opportunity to suggest meaningful, creative and unique names for exoplanet systems for their respective countries. This is only the second time in history that a campaign has led to the naming of stars and exoplanets. Overall, 360 000 proposals for names were received from 110+ countries. The National Committee in each country reduced their proposals to a shortlist of national candidates, which were presented to the public for their votes. A total of 420 000 people voted for their preferred candidates. This project will have a lasting impact, as the winning names will be used in parallel with the existing scientific nomenclature, credited to the person, group or institution that suggested them....

IAU100 NameExoWorlds Contest

For the second time in its history, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) has been organizing a competition for the names of the planets and stars around which they rotate ( http://www.nameexoworlds.iau.org/). This time, project participants dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the IAU are invited to give names to systems containing one star and one planet, with each country being allocated its own system. It is important to understand that approved names will not replace traditional scientific designations, but will be recognized by IAU as full names of objects and published with authorship. These names can then be used by anyone, without any restrictions, alongside or instead of scientific notation.

The HAT-P-15 planetary system in the constellation of Perseus is allocated to Ukraine. The star in this system is a yellow dwarf (type G) and is not yet accessible to ground-based telescopes. Exoplanet HAT-P-15b was opened in 2010 and is at a distance of 0.0965 AU. from the star, is a giant gas planet with a mass of 1.94 masses of Jupiter and an orbital period of 10.9 days (https://exoplanets.nasa.gov/exoplanet-catalog/1229/hat-p-15-b/).

 

Given the wide public resonance of the contest, the worldview of the proposed names for the planetary system that will perpetuate our choice, the National Committee urges all organizations to place this information on their web pages and keep it active until the end of the contest, and to disseminate it to all social networks.
