Star Name: Yanyan

Planet Name: Bubup

“We are on Boonwurrung country in the Kulin Nation in Victoria and the preschool children – 4 year olds- voted to use Boonwurrung language to name the planet and star, they also voted to use words relating to family as the theme that could be extended for further stars or planets.
Bubup is the Boonwurrung word for Child and is therefore significant to them. Yan Yan is the word for boy.
Other words the children considered were Boonwurrung for mother, sister, grandmother and cousin. Bubup and Yan Yan were chosen by the group, who have a strong connection to the Boonwurrung land and the first peoples.”
