I only have 5 spaces to use and need a custom name. A couple of the names I would like there are

AstroPhysicist
Astronomer
PlanetHunter

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could shorten any of theses into 5 Letters so that its understandable when you read it...

Are you sure only 5 spaces? I thought the minimum was about 6 with some going 7 or 8. With only 5, I don't see a real good way to shorten much of anything to fit that (I have never been called a master of creativity, though)

The only thing that comes to mind is FOPEC...just tell them you mean Friends Of Pristine Environment Club...nothing derogatory toward any middle eastern oil group.


PS - Oh wait, for astronomy oriented, I guess you could do:

ICSTR - (I see stars)
ASTRO
STARR - (Stars)
STARS
NYTGI - (night guy)
12CHG (want to see Hg (Mercury))
PLUTO
SPAAY - (Spa's-y...spacey)


OK, brain hurts now...I'm sure others will come up with more

yeah its five because I am getting a logo plate, and logo plates only have 5 characters. I want it to be astronomy related. thank. It is hard to think of something with five charachters.

Just keep in mind that you will more than likely want something people will understand. The first plate I wanted was ".25 CD" (meaning .25 coefficient of drag) probalby less the period, but I decided against it when I figured that almost no one would know what it ment except a hand full of engineers or other Insight owners.

Of course unless you purposely want to confuse people. Check your local DMV's web site, they might have a personalized plate look up like Arizona's does so you can see if any of your choices is already taken.

yeah, and with there being only 5 charachters thats why I am getting opinions from everyday drivers. I might just give space, or nasa, or nasa and a number, or a flight mission or something
