Here is a table of the first 32 exoplanets that will be named by the general public as part of the ExoWorlds Naming Contest of the International Astronomical Union (IAU). There is a lot to say about these 32 planets around 20 stars. Most of these stars are visible to the naked eye. The first discovered ones with the Arecibo Observatory around PSR 1257 12 are in the list. A formal announcement by the IAU should be coming soon.
