You know what this means. It’s been awhile since our last naming session, but now’s your opportunity to get your favorite planet a brand spanking new moniker. Here are the planets from last time that are still unnamed, please correct me in the comments below if I made any mistakes:
Are there any other suggestions out there? Comment below and I will add them to the list!
TL;DR Please comment WHICH PLANET you want to receive a name below
I would like to nominate LG-093a! its a crazy triple-red planet that operates as a LST, ALO, and AUO for the HRT region, 3 things it dearly lacks.

KI-840c should be on the list.
But I’d recommend the new starter planets get names before others.
OT-442b really needs a name, being the only starter planet without one now. I think something similar to Montem and Vallis would be quite appropriate. Like Volco, Riverun, or Steppton.

I would like to suggest “El Dorado” for LG-093a. Trippel red planet. So hard to get to, but plenty rich with ALO/LST and even GOLD!! ^^
Im also for naming OT-442b. It seems like the ugly sister of JS-299a. There is a lot of greek names related with JS-299a but I feel they dont realy match. But something like Infecunditas or Dürrenia*1 could be nice.
*1 in the sense of depleated soil

I’d like to propose the name Danakil for OT-442b; it’s a region in Ethiopia with sulfur hot springs, and given that OT-442b has both SCR and H20 I think it would be fitting
Ok seems like we’ve got some good suggestions going. Let the voting begin! First vote on which planet will receive a name:
Looks like OT-442b is the winner! So far I see we have a few ideas for a name: Infecunditas, Dürrenia, Volco, Riverun, Steppton, Ifrit, Danakil. Any other ideas out there?
Kinda similar to Volco, but I like Vulcanus - seems like there could be a lot of volcanic activity on that planet for that amount of sulfer/oxygen (and probably sulfer dioxide) to exist.
One related question: if I use my planet naming privilege now, is that locked in for the next universe?

No, planet naming rights reset with a universe reset.
Thanks for the feedback! Let’s close out this round with an official vote on OT-442b. What should it be called?
OT-442b shall be henceforth known as Danakil! Thanks for everyone who participated. Big shoutout to discern for proposing the name! Stay tuned for the next ‘Name THAT Planet’
Wow, that was an abrupt flip. Vulcanus was winning quite decisively. Did Danakil even have any votes yesterday or the day before?
It was rather abrupt. I was also surprised but I tried to wait until around the same number of people voted in the previous polls before closing it.
