Creating a truly International Star Registry

17th December 2018

Our International Star Registry covers the whole globe. No matter where you come from in the world; when the sun sets, and the stars come out there is a special tingly feeling every human being gets when they look up into the night sky for the first time. Every culture, every creed, every religion has a strong relationship with the stars. Hence why we think it’s important to ensure that the stars are for everyone. We have created a global and international star registry that anyone from anywhere in the world can access and find their star – something we have made really simple!

You can find our Star Register on the link below!

At this point, we have websites for numerous different countries and are looking to expand to more for the future. We can ship worldwide from the UK and USA websites. Here's a quick rundown of all of the websites we have worldwide!

The United Kingdom - The origins of our Global and International Star Registry

Our international star registry began in the UK

Yup, Star Name Registry is a British Company, based in Cardiff Wales. So we consider ourselves a Welsh company, with most of our employees being Welsh. The British Isles themselves have an interesting relationship with the stars especially considering the long prevalent theory about Stonehenge being a monument built to track the movements of the sun, moon, and stars thousands of years ago. That's not even going into the plethora of Celtic mythology and traditions about the stars that the most ancient people who lived on these islands had. The United Kingdom has a long and proud history with the stars and we are proud to have our global and international star registry available to absolutely everyone on the planet.

You can find our UK Website here.

The United States and Canada

We also have websites dedicated to the United States and to Canada expanding the reach of our international star register across the Atlantic ocean. The native Americans had their own traditions and mythologies relating to the stars entirely different from those that emerged from Europe. For example, there was a specific group amongst Pawnee Indians, that referred to a ring of stars in the sky as “The Council of Chiefs.” The Pawnee believed the circle represented their governance style, with a group of elders holding a council to resolve important matters. .

Continental Europe

We have three websites in non-English speaking countries. France, Spain, and Germany. All of the countries have had all our materials translated into their respective languages too, so you know you'll be getting knowledge tailored to your country of origin. Perfect for our global and international star registry, it's an experience that you can share no matter the language you speak.

Southern Hemisphere

One thing that isn't too commonly known is that you can only see certain stars depending on which hemisphere you are in and what time of year it is. It why we always recommend choosing a constellation that lies with the hemisphere in which you live, so you know that it will be shinning above you. Speaking of the Southern Hemisphere, our international Star Register has two websites in that region, South Africa and Australia.

The Rest of the World

Wherever you're based in the world, don't worry if there isn't a website for your particular country, we ship worldwide if you order from either our American or UK websites! We do believe that star naming is a truly international experience and as far we are concerned our star register is open to every human being on Planet Earth, no matter where they come from. Where are you from in the world and what do the stars mean to you? Let us know on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages!
