Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects

 either use the existing MAPS designations or    if new acronyms are used, the designations should follow a    similar format, namely    MAPS-AA PFFF-NNNNNNN or    MAPS-AAA PFFF-NNNNNNN or    MAPS-AAAA PFFF-NNNNNNN    where the POSS-I field number and O-emulsion "starnum" ID are    used. The AA, AAA, or AAAA refers to the nature of the subfield,    type of object, or to the initials of the authors' last names    (and is unique - i.e. it does not already appear in the    Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects). It is    recommended that any such new acronyms be pre-registered with    the IAU, using the form at    http://cdsweb.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/DicForm.
