Name Planets Beyond Our Solar System

The first planet discovered outside our solar system is named “PSR 81257+12 B”. Not so catchy, is it?

Uwingu wants to give planets more human-friendly labels, and you can help! Nominate names and vote on your favorites to build a database of planet names across the galaxy.
