Who was exactly naming these stars?
All of the planets as we speak of them today
were named after Greek and Roman gods and godesses.
HOWEVER
approximately six thousand years ago
the wandering stars Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Mercury
had different MESOPOTAMIAN/SUMERIAN names
i.e.

NABU = Mercury today named after Roman god of travel.
INANNA/ISHTARE = Venus today named after Roman goddess of love and beauty.
NERGAL = Mars today named after Roman god of War.
MARDUK = Jupiter today named after king of the Roman gods
NINURTA = Saturn today named after Roman god of agriculture.
