IAU: To rename the newly discovered planet "HD 106906 b" to Gallifrey! In honour of Doctor Who and its 50 years! #GallifreyFound

I really want this planet to be named Gallifrey. Even if it just an honorary name, or a officially recognised as "also known as Gallifrey" there really needs to be a Gallifrey out there in the universe. Doctor Who is legendary, award winning, record breaking, and global, and this planet deserves something special and supernatural as its name, How better to honor its existence than by dubbing it the home planet of our beloved time travelling alien, The Doctor? Do it for the fandom! Please share! and get evreyone whovian to sign this petition!
