Tilapia
Astro-Club "Nippy" would like to propose for the sun-like star "epsilon Eridani" the name "Tilapia", while this star can engender and maintain a civilization of intelligent tilapias on one of the moons of the planet "epsilon Eridani b". Tilapia sapiens is a genus of fishes in the Cichlidae family. The similar extremophilic tilapias exist in warm Lake Natron in Kenya and Tanzania, and a saltwater ocean on one of the many small moons that orbit Saturn called Enceladus is the most likely place in the solar system for extraterrestrial life in the form of tilapias to be found. The system Sun-Saturn-Enceladus is very similar to the Exoworld "epsilon Eridani"-"epsilon Eridani b"-"moon of epsilon Eridani b" (Tilapia-Natron-Natron II).

Rán
Rán is the Norse goddess of the sea and she drags drowning sailors to the bottom of the ocean with her net. Her pulling things with her net made us think of a star's immense gravitational pull.
