I think Timo brought up Vega not being a constellation, because historically in the real world, the bright stars in the sky were designated by Greek letter plus constellation. Syntactically, Delta Vega would fit that nomenclature, if only Vega were a constellation. "Delta Vega" sounds like a legitimate astronomical otherwise, and that's just a trope, by the way.
