Mensagem:  I'm probably missing something here, but the sentence still sounds weird to me. I can't work out a logical meaning. I'd be comfortable if the sentence were the following:

Have you ever heard or thought about naming a star?

But that "how" in the beginning seems to turn the sentence into gibberish (in my opinion, of course).

Can you guys elaborate on the meaning of the original sentence?
