Well, Rigel Amanda 3 sounds better than Alberta Alauda.
We need to know how many planets are between the new planet and the sun
Alpha Centauri B. Is there a Venus , Mercury?


Yep i approve, now where do i sign


though it sounds like that awful little alien from Firescape was it not Rigel?

How about Cardassia Prime or Ceti Alpha V? A little Star Trek won't hurt.


Wikipedia calls the system Rigel Kent.
Kent Alpha 4 ?

Sounds good, I like it. Better get my starship ready for the long flight.

Tattooine would be a good name. Too bad the stars aren't that close to each other to look like a double sunset from the planet.

Naming the planet "Vulcan" however, would be most illogical.

I am sooo not digging the whole "Rigel" thing, sounds too much like Nigel, makes me think of a balding middle-aged planet


It's got to be Gallifrey!!!

Cento Wan

the next planets they find on that system can be Cento Too, and Cento Wii and Cent Aur


Or just name the planet Centaur or Cent Aur. I like that.

Jay Lark, who nominated "Albertus Alauda," said he chose the exoplanet name to honor his late grandfather.

"It is his name in Latin (Albert Lark)," Jay Lark wrote in his submission to the contest. "My grandfather passed away after a lengthy and valiant battle with cancer; his name in Latin means noble or bright and to praise or extol. I think this is an apt description as my grandfather was a noble man and bright of character, and in this nomination I wish to honour (extol) him."


This guy just wanted to honor his late grandfather and now you want to take that away from him?

I like this one: MEGALES BALES that is the English pronunciation

Here is the Greek spelling: μεγάλες μπάλες

Any guess as to what it means??

Thank you for posting. More and more planets outside our solar system are found and will be found in the future. Just about 10 years ago astronomers doubted there were any other planets outside our solar system that are similar to Earth, but now...so many of them have been found.

The more planets you find, the more proof and possibilities of life out there. It could be similar to here, it could be totally different. We will have to find out one day. Hopefully in my lifetime.

Big balls? Horrible name...

All joking aside it is important to note that this is NOT an official title given by the international astronomical society (I don't remember the actual name of the institution).
It is merely a scam by some private company...
But, anyway I propose "Tintopia"...

I say we call it Peter Griffin, after the famous philosopher.
