Let’s Improve this No Man’s Sky Naming Convention

I know there’s a lot that can be done to improve this No Man’s Sky naming convention. I’ve already identified a couple of holes or places with room for expansion:

  • more pantheons for system naming;
  • a theme for flora.

There are some things that I’m not 100% happy with:

  • inclusion of oddities in the system name – perhaps something better than prefixes/suffixes could be incorporated;
  • some stellar classes are more likely to arise than others, which the system naming convention doesn’t properly take into account – it might make more sense to give more variety to regions of the Hertzsprung-Russel diagram that are more frequently represented in the galaxies of No Man’s Sky;
  • possibility of repeated genera and temperaments of fauna on particular worlds, leading to ad-hoc single letter suffixes on the temperament-deity portion of the species’ trinomial name.

If anyone reading this has any ideas, please get in touch or leave a comment below. I’d love to hear from the No Man’s Sky community.
