If and when mankind starts traveling to the stars, do you think they will keep their numbered/lettered star survey names like "Gliese 343", "Ross 401", "Chi Virginis" or will they give them city-like names ("New Gettysburg")? I personally lean toward the city-style of star and planet naming. I like the "classical" names like Sirius, Polaris, Arcturus, etc as they are recognizable and sound cool. Some other numbered/lettered stars will likely keep their names mainly because there's been loads of fiction written with them. I'm looking at you, Alpha Centauri and Epsilon Eridani. However, I've never been a fan of the science-fiction use of numerical star names like "Wolf 359". That's not even a name, it's an entry in a catalog. I've always thought that if people wanted to live there they would give it an actual place name. Worse yet is when people use a NGC-name for a star. NGCs are star clusters and not individual stars, so it's basically like making the Kessel run in under three parsecs. What do you guys and gals think?
