[Bellatrix](https://github.com/ethereum/pm/issues/430#issuecomment-985399897) - Resource: [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellatrix), [osr.org](https://osr.org/blog/astronomy/bellatrix/) - Latin for '**female warrior**'; 25th-brightest star in the night sky. - **Bellatrix** is about 20 million years-old and is thought to have six times the radius of the Sun and eight or nine solar masses. Bellatrix also has a bluish-hue and shines the 3rd brightest in its home constellation and 27th overall in the night sky. Bellatrix is also one of the four stars that are used in celestial navigation. - aka Helena Bonham Carter ![](https://storage.googleapis.com/ethereum-hackmd/upload_a3cf878670c2febaf9fe4f2e54bc6bad.png =500x) ## 2. [Betelgeuse](https://github.com/ethereum/pm/issues/430#issuecomment-988202436) - Resource: [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betelgeuse) Betelgeuse in the **Orion** constellation is *one of the largest stars visible to the naked eye*. It is also inherently meme-able in English, as it's pronounced similar to Beetlejuice. ![](https://storage.googleapis.com/ethereum-hackmd/upload_76ce0fbb51d923ac40b51d6bfe7d58dd.png =500x) ## 3. [Botein](https://github.com/ethereum/pm/issues/430#issuecomment-985681774) Known as "**little belly**" within the constellation of **Aries** (so has a link to the A-range of stars). It has the advantage of being a short name to type, fairly clear pronunciation (Boh-teen) due to similar look to protein and does not appear to have an obvious non-English use. Previously known as Delta Arietis but now officially designated Botein by the WGSN. It is just about visible to the naked eye (near the Pleiades) if there is no light pollution.
