What's wrong with "astronauts"? Even Cochran used it!

It's even etymologically correct: ástron (star) and nautes (sailor); so a member of a star fleet.

Since Starfleet Personnel use a stardrive on a starship to travel to starbases and star systems why not call them starmen or astromen?

Just a thought,
