(circumpolar - our view of the constellation on Earth) Constellations are circumpolar because they are only how we view them on Earth. The constellations would be different on another planet or at another viewing point. They are circumpolar since they are at different distances in relation to each other and to the Earth.
They are not named after people. The different showers are named after the constellations they appear to be coming from. The Perseids appear to come from Perseus and the Leonids appear to come from Leo for example. In reality, they have no connection to the constellations they are named after. Those are just the constellations that happen to be behind the point where the meteors appear to come from. The constellations are huge distances away…
Constellations are important because our current calendars are based on the zodiacal constellations - the constellations along the ecliptic. The different zodiacal constellations were used as a tool for our ancestors to know when animals hibernate, and migrate - they used them to tell when the rainy season was coming - they used them to know when to harvest and plant their crops.

That being said, this is why different parts of the world get different constellations that those here in the US can't see. This is also true about the southern having different ones than those in the northen hemisphere.
The Earth rotates on it's axis showing us a different view of the night sky The constellations apparently move because the earth moves. It not only rotates, giving the impression that the constellations rise and set, but it also moves in its orbit around the sun, thereby giving us different views at different times of year.

Not all of the constellations will have a myth or story behind them but most do. You will want to look at the different ones that you find online and see which ones have stories and which don't. Just remember that constellations are not real but are instead used as a…
Constellations are human interpretation to how stars seem to make shapes and patterns. Most constellations need a lot of imagination to be seen and different cultures have interpreted them differently. The constellations are also not really there in the sense that what we see as flat images in the sky are actually three dimensional with stars hundreds of light years apart.
