    What Would You Name The 7 New Earth-Sized Planets?

    I figured I'd post this in light of @Science Friction's thread about the 7 Earth-sized planets identified orbiting a dwarf star. If you were the individual in charge of naming them, what would you call them?

    The star is called TRAPPIST-1. Let's name them after notable Trappists or the locations of Trappist Abbeys.

    De Rance
    Lestrange
    Wyert
    Merton
    Etc....

    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.
