Name a Star Gift Box FAQ

Question: Seriously, can I name the star anything I want? For instance, can I name my star "Jonas Brothers Forever"?

Answer: Yes, you can name your star anything you want. There are absolutely zero restrictions for the name. So, there's no one to stop you from naming a billion-year-old celestial body after a boy band.

Question: So, how exactly does the Name a Star Gift Box work?

Answer: Your purchase of the Name a Star Gift Box covers all registration charges for your recipient. So, upon receipt of their gift, they simply fill out the registration certificate which can either be done online or via the mail. Once their registration is confirmed, they will receive a confirmation certificate which proves inclusion in the Star Registry that is cataloged in the British Library.

Question: Will scientists be required to use my star's name?

Answer: No. We wouldn't expect someone with a PhD in Astrophysics to be required to call that billion-year-old celestial body, "I love Miley Cyrus".
