    Star names
    From: Frank Reed CT

    Sky Publishing has arranged to re-print "A Dictionary of Modern Star
    Names" by Paul Kunitzsch and Tim Smart. This is the best resource for
    the origins of star names. It corrects the out-right errors and
    muddled ramblings of the more widely-known old book by R.H. Allen,
    "Star Names - Their Lore and Meaning". So if reading a page-long
    history of the star name "Albireo" is your cup of tea, I heartily
    recommend this book. It's a slim volume, and probably all of its
    content will be on Wikipedia within two years, but I'm still happy
    with the money I spent on my copy. It's available online at
