    George,
    
    The names you mentioned are the commonly accepted "Rey's" method.
    (H. A. Rey "The Stars: A New Way To See Them")  The book, for children
    and adults, tries to depict more identifiable names for the constellations.
    
    The Starry Night software also allows users to choose the "Rey" constellations
    as well as Astronomical and Zodiac.
    
    I find the "Rey" method confusing, but many people swear by it -
    especially for teaching children.
