Subject: Too similar?

So, I posted the other day about renaming my alien race (still haven't come with anything, but that's beside the point).

In connection with my alien race, I was considering a particular theme of names in higher class families of this alien race: star, constellation and galaxy names.

However, I'm afraid this might be too similar to J.K Rowling's naming of the Black family, especially as there are only so many names in that category.

When I first began writing it (like 4 years ago), one of the main protagonist names was Bellatrix, I mostly planned to call her 'Trix' though, and chose her name because of its meaning.

EDIT: Some of the character planning
The main character/narrator: Lyra
Her family: Father Altair, Mother Carina and brothers Arcturus and Hyperion
Other main: Bellatrix
