Yes. Scientists and astronomers name them. They usually give them code names like CS354 because there are just to many to name. Not all stars have been named yet by man. But the book of Psalms says that God knows every star by name.

How did stars get their names?

Stars are named by agreement by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). All official names have to be adopted by the IAU. There are certain rules which have to be followed in the official names allocated to different types of object. Traditional names for the brightest stars come from the old Arabic names. Some bright stars have either Flamsteed numbers or Greek letters assigned originally by Bayer. Other stars are generally referred to by a catalogue number. A small number of stars are named after individual astronomers as an honour for that astronomer's outstanding work on that star.
