Has anyone thought of a better name for this planet yet?? One of the first really promising sites for life outside our solar system and it's named after a telescope!

I think we should call it Eden.

I thought of "Scheherazade"--

another high-G world, but at least it should have a reasonably short "day"...

Fascinating stuff graywyvern but isn't it rather hopeless? I mean 600 light years is a long way to find out if there's anyone there! Wink

I came up with the name Odette, because it is in the Cygnus constellation (A latinized version of the Greek word for 'Swan') and Odette was the female protagonist of Tchaikovsky's ballet, "Swan Lake." Alternatively, the name Siegfried also works as he was the male protagonist in the story and most exoplanetary names are masculine.

I think it should simply be named Hope. For, at this point, it's existence gives us Hope that we are not alone, and we can only Hope that it has life, as well as only Hope that we can find a way to visit it one day.
