Comets, planets, stars, and moons are famous for having really cool names inspired by mythology, art, nature, etc. They are great sources of inspiration when you are trying to find the perfect name for a baby, a pet, or a character in your novel.

## How are comets named?

One comet can have multiple names. This is because there are multiple naming systems that have changed over the years.

First, there is the “proper” name. This name is given by its discoverer or the observatory that spotted it first. Because modern astronomers started discovering so many comets thanks to new technologies, this system became confusing because multiple comets could end up having the same name as you will see in the table below.

So the “true” name for a comet is its scientific designation. The current naming convention used by the International Astronomical Union includes comet names that look like:

- P/2001 F2
- C/1992 P1
- D/1969 N2

Let’s split up the names and see how each part is given.

The first letter refers to the comet’s type, given by the next table:

P | Periodic comets |

C | Non-periodic comets |

X | Comets with no meaningful orbit |

D | A periodic comet that has been lost, broken up, or disappeared |

A | An object previously identified as a comet that is now classified as a minor planet |

I | Interstellar object. Only 2 of these are currently identified |

Next, the name contains the year of discovery, so a non-periodic comet discovered in 1995 would be C/1995.

The last part is a bit more complex. The next letter of the name refers to the month it was discovered. It goes from A-H or J-Y, the first block for the first half of the year, the latter for the second half.

Each block contains 12 letters and they are given in half months. So, the first half of January is A, the second half of January is B, the first half of February is C, and so on.

The final number simply means the order in which it was discovered in that period. If it was the first comet discovered in that half month, it receives a 1, if it was the second it receives a 2, etc.

So a name like **C/2007 H2** really just means: The second non-periodic comet discovered in the second half of June, 2007.

## Comet Names

You will find the (almost) complete list of comet names below. We have grouped together the comets that share the same name, but you can see the individual designations in the right column.

We have not included comets that do not have a proper name which are mostly of the X (no meaningful orbit) classification.

Unlike planets or stars, comets can be named after the person that discovered which is why you will see more regular names instead of names with a mythological or natural origin.
