Sirius- I really like this name. Sound, spelling, and I think the fact that it's the brightest star is such a sweet thing to bestow on a child. But I'd never use it as a first name because it's just asking for teasing. As a middle name I'd be totally down with it.
Aries- It's got a nice enough sound and look but it's become a bit cartoonish to me now with the traditional image of Aries and all.
Quasar/Quazar- Haven't heard of this, and can't say I care for it.
Neil- I really like Neil. It's one of those quiet names that slips under people's radars.
Pollux- Can't take the sound of it serious. Remind me of pox and illness.
Caster- Don't like the sound or look. Too bland.
Callisto- Well, Calista is decent. Callisto is nice too- I don't have anything negative to say, but I probably wouldn't use it.
Orion- Never cared for it as a name. Once things get too literal (here, it's Orion's Belt) then they lose their appeal as names for me.
Leo- I love Leo! Packs a good amount of punch into three letters, and is fashionable without being likely to turn dated.
Kepler- Don't like the sound of this one.
Gemini- Too literal again. I immediately think of twins and the star sign.
Buzz- Too silly.
Andromeda- I think it has potential, but it's a little too over the top for my tastes.
Nova- It's okay, but I do immediately want to add "caine" to the end.
Bellatrix- Now tied too closely with Bellatrix Lestrange for me.
Luna- Oddly though, I'd consider Luna. Even though it does remind me of the character. Maybe it's because I like this character and was aware of this name prior to Harry Potter, whereas the same can't be said for Bellatrix?
Arista- It's okay. But it gives me a rich, snooty vibe.
Estella- I prefer Estelle or Stella. The extra A here just barely tips it into "too much" territory for my tastes.
Europa- I don't think it would be taken too seriously.
Celestia- Not a fan, also reminds me of sleeping and My Little Pony.
Cynthia- I don't mind it and generally have pleasant thoughts about it, but wouldn't use it myself.
Pheobe- I used to like it a lot, now I just find it okay.
Lyra- I go back and forth on it. Sometimes the sound bothers me, other times I like it.
