All names (except for homeworlds) in this post are the Kerakin names. The original names are either trivial or forgotten by now.
The bulk of the Kerakin cluster consists of three stars in relatively close proximity, known as the "three sisters". The huge "Agnes", the relatively large "Dorothy", and the tiny "Gertrude". Each has its own planetary systems surrounding them.
THE AGNATIAN SYSTEM consists of 53 planets, most of which are either inhospitable or gas giants. However, in the 'Goldilocks Zone', there are two settled worlds, Kera and Teg. Neither of these two planets have moons, yet revolve around each other as they revolve around Agnes. Kera is clearly visible in Teg's sky, and Teg is Kera's sky (roughly 2-3 times the size of our moon in the night sky). Kera is mostly land, so the first populations sprang up just short of the arctic circle. The icecaps were available as a water source, but because of the need, they were quick to develop technology to create water from Hydrogen and Oxygen in the atmosphere. However, the area around the equator remained desolate wasteland. Because of the need for more habitable land, the Kerakin were quick to develop technologies to invade Teg. Now, after more irrigation and terraforming nearly 75% of Kera is now inhabitable.
The Tegor were a peace-loving people, living on small island continents that dotted the surface of their ocean planet. Many of their habitations have been built high off of the ground, to avoid the huge waves caused by the large bodies of water and the pull of nearby Kera. They were slower than the Kerakin in developing technologies, but their skills in creating ocean-going vessels translated well into making space-going cruisers, as opposed to the Kerakin's relatively utilitarian military ships.
Closest to Agnes, before the "Goldilocks Zone", there are the uninhabitable rocks Cannon, Vex, Wilson, Wagon, Rock, Perrin, Jazz, Mak, Joy, Timber, Dal, Doc, and Gem.
Then, in the "Goldilocks Zone", there is Treble, Bass, Saxon, Ped, Ferrous, Chaos, Zen, Journey, Progress, Lake, Karn, Teg, Kera, Halen, Rex, Ran, Pageant, June, Pilgrim, Faith and Elvis.
The 19 gas giants are Eris, Sin, Ea, Osiris, Vidor, Frey, Tyr, Balor, Lugh, Akna, Sedna, Iris, Ptah, Shu, Pan, Ocasta, Apsu, Bran, and Hephaestus.
THE DORTHINIAN SYSTEM is composed of 17 planets. There are 3 inhospitable 'rocks' closest to the sun, named Baron, Keen, and March. The 'Goldilocks Zone' contains 6 potentially hospitable planets, named Boone, Greene, Pak, Sigma, Reese and Slav. Of these, only Pak and Slav were originally inhabited. The other 8 planets are gas giants. The first gas giant, Prometheus, contains two large moons, Boll and Uwe, that have been terraformed and can be lived upon. The other eight gas giants are Io, Zeus, Loki, Rhea, Leto, Sobek, Supai, and Geth.
THE GERTRUDIAN SYSTEM consists of only 6 planets. Only one, Krynn, is inhabitable without terraforming. The others, in order from Gertrude, is Hemon, Krynn, Dal, the gas giants Prit and Jo, and the remote outworld Sten.

The thermal exhaust port of your Death Star™ plays a critical role in the dissipation of excess waste heat produced by the Death Star's energy reactors. Under no circumstances is the thermal exhaust port to be covered, obstructed or modified in any way.
