tau Boötis b Rudani
Al Rudani (born ca. 1627, died 1683) was an astronomer born in Taroudant, Morocco.
He is especially well known for the invention of a spherical device into which another sphere (painted blue) with a different axis was placed. This second sphere was divided into two parts in which the zodiacal signs with their sections and regions were drawn. Al-Rudānī wrote a book describing it : Al Nāfia fī amal al jāmia (Medina, 1662).

Please discard my old proposal in 47 Ursae Majoris and keep this one in Tau Bootis.

tau Boötis Synra
The fixed stars are the place where various elements causing every
substances in the universe are made. They also play a role of an energy
source which controls every phenomenon that happens in the star-planets
systems.
In addition, the constellation of Bootes is considered to be a giant
supporting universe in a Greek myth.
From the above, We would like to call the host star “Synra”. It is taken
from
a Japanese word "Shinra-bansho" which means all thing and all
phenomenon that occur in the universe.
tau Boötis b Chimon
We propose "Chimon" as the name of the exoplanet tau Bootis b.
We choose this word because “Chimon” indicates one of three parts of
“Shinra-bansho”, that is, geographical phenomenon on the earth, for
example, rivers, lakes, valleys, and mountains. In addition,
"Chimon-gaku" means the scientific field studying physical geography,
topography and climates.
The tau Bootis b is one of the earliest exoplanets discoveries which
have brought us various possibilities of extrasolar worlds including
terrestrial planets. We put our expectations for the future progress of
exoplanet studies in this name.

tau Boötis Alfraganus
Abū al-ʿAbbās Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad ibn Kathīr al-Farghānī. also known as Alfraganus in the West, was an Arab or Persian Sunni Muslim astronomer, and one of the most famous astronomers in the 9th century. The crater Alfraganus on theMoon is named after him.
He was involved in the calculation of the diameter of the Earth by the measurement of the meridian arc length, together with a team of scientists under the patronage of al-Ma'mūn in Baghdad. Later he moved to Cairo, where he composed a treatise on the astrolabe around 856. There he also supervised the construction of the large Nilometer on the island of al-Rawda (in Old Cairo) in the year 861. His textbook Kitāb fī Jawāmiʿ ʿIlm al-Nujūm (كتاب في جوامع علم النجوم A Compendium of the Science of the Stars) or Elements of astronomy on the celestial motions, written about 833, was a competent descriptive summary of Ptolemy's Almagest, while using the findings and revised values of earlier Islamic astronomers.[4] It was translated into Latin in the 12th century and remained very popular in Europe until the time ofRegiomontanus. Dante Alighieri's knowledge of Ptolemaic astronomy, which is evident in his Divina Commedia as well as other works such as the Convivio, seems to have been drawn from his reading of Alfraganus.[5][6] In the 17th century the Dutch orientalist Jacob Goliuspublished the Arabic text on the basis of a manuscript he had acquired in the Near East, with a new Latin translation and extensive notes.
