One of the stars I encountered was named Latios.
I was very excited by it, but there was a tribe on one of the planets. So I ruined the T-Score, exterminating them and placed my own colony in the system. Now I have a colony in the Latios system. and I'm happy.

One of the most recently encountered celestial bodies was named Mobbery. It's one letter away from robbery, and it sounds pretty silly. Mobbery.
Pokémon are creatures too.

I kept having repeated ecodisasters on the planet Angery.

I saw one planet named Polyton. Given that Soren worked on the game, I wouldn't be surprsied if it was a reference to Apolyton.

A planet named Barns
and another celestial body (ca'n't remember whether it's a star or what) named Elfman.

One solar system I came across was named "Brine" which is funny because
A: It is a technique for prepping an seasoning meats.
B: It is my Fiance's pet name for me :P

One planet I encountered was named Favor.
I think it was one of my ally's planets.

I've come across planets with "-2" appended to the name, but no "-3" or "-4" etc.

I saw one planet named Polyton. Given that Soren worked on the game, I wouldn't be surprsied if it was a reference to Apolyton.
I'm pretty sure the names are randomly generated (probably by combining syllables according to certain rules), not taken from a list, otherwise we wouldn't have so many obvious english words.
