    "If this is 'Benetnasch' don't worry. It's the name used in the German
    Nautical Almanach."
    
    Benetnasch was formerly also the common name in British navigation
    publications. When the American and British almanacs began coordinating
    their efforts in the 1950s (leading to the joint publication starting fifty
    years ago this year), the first step was to settle on a common list of star
    names. Thus Benetnasch became Alkaid, and Deneb Kaitos became Diphda in
    trade.
