Bill Morris you wrote: The International Astronomical Union has beaten us to it. Wikipaedia gives a comprehensive table of named stars, together with the origins of the names and agreed pronunciations in the English language, using the international phonetic alphabet.
Having looked at the Wikipedia IPA page, I think I’d rather read Martian. Interestingly, if I’m reading the Wikipedia IAU page correctly, even the IAU offers two IPA pronunciations for Betelgeuse. Diversity still rules OK. DaveP
