How do you guys come up with them?
They probably just pick cool names of different stars
Occasional moderator, sometimes BOFH. Opinions are my own, except when my wife disagrees.
At the beginning we picked either specific star names or generic star names (such as "Andromedae", with the intent to mean "any star of constellation Andromeda"; "Andromedae" is Latin genitive, it means "of Andromeda", "belonging to Andromeda", you'll see that there are and there were other servers which do not have a specific star name).
Then we picked only specific star names, which is still the current policy... which could perhaps be changed in the near future.
For fun, try to locate (between the currently active VPN servers) two different servers with different names which indicate the same specific star. Strangely nobody noticed that, until now.
well now its a challenge and a star hunting i will go

Well, there are numerous examples.. though with a greek letter in front of it since they are a part of constellations.
Menkib = (Zeta) Persei
Seginus = (Gamma) Bootis < inactive server, though
Sabik = (Eta) Ophiuchi
Heze = (Zeta) Virginis
