    There may be problems when the new object isn t in Simbad yet (as often happens). In that case a name should be used which might be used by Simbad later on

      There may be problems when the new object isn't in Simbad yet (as often
      happens). In that case a name should be used which might be used by
      Simbad later on (e.g. GSC or USNO numbers).
