Minor planet name list
« on: September 24, 2009, 04:08:30 PM »
In case anyone else is interested, I created a text file containing the list of minor planet names found on this page: http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/iau/lists/MPLists.html

Some of them are just as difficult to pronounce as the generated ones, but many of them are notable and interesting. Plus, I think it's cool having the in-game planets named after actual (minor) planets. There's over 15,000 names in the list, so you shouldn't notice too much repetition :) Even if you're not interested in the entire list, it might serve as filler for your own list.

I also want to put together a list of actual planets, but many of these minor planets have really interesting names and I thought they fit well.
