Then the player who discovers the wormhole has the opportunity to give it a custom name of their choice. The computer generated name would be the wormholes astrological name. The customized naming would be a way to reward exploration and allow the player/race to put their stamp on the galaxy.
Allowing the player/race that discovers the wormhole the right to name it would tap into the creativity and infinite variability of the community.
It's also probably the most realistic idea when you get right down to it.
