Some astronomical names can be a little difficult to pronounce.  For example, the constellation Boötes is pronounced "boo-OH-tees" not "Boots" or "Booties".  In some cases careful pronunciation may be necessary to avoid embarrassment as in the case of Uranus, which is pronounced "Yoor-a-nus", not "Your-anus".
