You can even have the original PHP code to set up your own site to sell Star Names. I will provide the Star data, except for the customer information and all the php programs. The PHP was written 14 years ago, so it is quite dated and might need a good PHP coder to get it up to speed.

If anyone has found another free star naming site, please tell me so I can post it here.

Read about star naming at the International Astronomical Union, the organization that names stars. No official star naming organization charges money for naming stars.
