Stars in the astronomy community are not named after people (although asteroids are). So, on a technical level, it's an honorary thing instead of official. But I'm willing to overlook that!
I normally don't think I have a celestial body when I look in the mirror. Having a star renamed after me may cause me to rethink that.
The next time you gaze at the sky look for my star. Feel free to wish on it!

Twinkle twinkle little Ken Carr star, how I wonder what you are...
