    George, I was taught "Big Dipper" and Little Dipper even as a kid, but have 
    never heard of Painter, Sails, Compass, Air Pump.
    
    Sounds like they are trying to produce some new guide for children and nmes 
    they can remember. (Ugh.) Or, if they are French and aiming at an "english" 
    market, perhaps someone got too literal with translations.
