Satellite name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for satellites, but they work for similar space objects, stations and ships as well, to some extend.

Satellites are usually named after either a celestial body, a Greek or Latin mythological being or after a person, usually a scientist or other important figure in history. I focused primarily on scientist names and on names of celestial bodies. The first 5 names are scientist names, either first or last names, and names will randomly be assigned a serial number of sorts as well, as some satellites have these. Not all names will have one though.
The last 5 names are names of celestial bodies, but they come in many different languages. These too might be paired up with a serial number, but again not all will have one.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
