* ''KimbaTheWhiteLion's'' name in Japan is Leo, which is that of a constellation (the Lion). However Leo (Latin for "lion") is also a real-life given name and surname, carried e. g. by thirteen popes, so it is not clear if this is an astronomic allusion.

The night sky has been a source of wonder and inspiration for generations. Each new generation is told to "reach for the stars," and stories of people taking that advice quite literally can be found in your local bookstore's Science Fiction section. Most of us aren't so lucky as to be able to travel to the heavens, but there's still one [[strike:[[IncrediblyLamePun constellation]]]] consolation: We can name our children after them.

In brief, a StellarName is a character name derived from something found in the night sky, such as a star, planet, constellation, or other object. "Eta Carinae" or "Cygnus X-1" are unlikely, but these would probably also be NamesToRunAwayFrom.
