Naming a star, including star sponsorship

During a private star christening (or star christening, also star sponsorship or star sponsorship), a star designated by a catalog number is named with a name of your own choosing.

In science, all stars are designated by catalog numbers to allow for easy identification. The internationally known International Astronomical Union (IAU) is usually cited as the authority in the field of star naming. This organization assigns the names according to internationally recognized criteria and expressly distances itself from the commercial providers of star christenings. Only very few stars have a traditional name that goes beyond this, which can also vary from country to country.

There are commercial providers who generally name stars for a sum of money and enter them into a register. These entries have no scientific or official meaning and only exist in the respective company-owned or other privately maintained list and on a printout provided to the customer. It is a purely symbolic gesture that anyone can carry out themselves. Since the different providers each keep their own lists, it can happen that several 'christened names' are assigned to a single star. The brighter and therefore rarer a star is, the higher the probability that such multiple naming will occur. For the purchase price, the buyer receives a certificate produced by the company that contains the baptismal name and other text as well as, if necessary, a detailed map that shows a section of the constellation of the baptized star. In some cases, an image of the star or a supplementary sheet containing detailed astronomical data for the selected star beyond the coordinates is also included.

The service is often advertised with an entry in a so-called international register. As a rule, this register is just another website of the respective commercial provider. Legally, only an entry in a company's private star register is purchased; the buyer has no rights to the star itself or to its official name or marking.

Name a Star by Star Baptism are also used by non-profit organizations (NPOs) in the astronomical environment (observatories, planetariums, astronomical clubs and institutes) as a fundraising or marketing tool. The prices for a commercial star christening vary greatly. The range goes from free to several hundred euros.
