Yeah, like naming it after the Sailor Starlights.
Teacher: Children, What is the farthest planet from the sun?
Kids: STAR HEALER!
Hi-larious. Laughed for a good five minutes there. I can see kids doing that.
I agree with pretty much anyone who says it should be named Nemesis. Not only is it a Sailormoon reference, it has history in mythology too. (It was supposed to be in the Earth's orbit, on the exact opposite side of the Sun, and thus unseeable from Earth. Or something like that.)
Personally, I think Kakyuu would make a better name for a star than a planet, but it could work. Kinmoku would be quite cool as well.
Oh, and Peachvampiress, I like your "call it Peach" idea. Gave me an idea. I think that, since it's small and most likely made of rock, as most small planets are, it would be like a temperature-inverse version of Mercury, and thus we should call it...
What do you guys think?
...All right then. Probably wouldn't work anyway. We've got enough kids in the world who can't find their own province on the map. We don't need to confuse them further with two identically named planets. ^_^
EDIT: Decided I have enough quotes without having to steal the Star Healer one as well. Still like it, though.
