Following the trend that most game worlds end in -a, the name Astera most likely comes from the biologic word Aster, which defines a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. The name Aster comes from the Ancient Greek word astron, meaning "star", arriving through the Latin word astrum with the same meaning. The name may also come from Latin "austeru" which means "austere".
