No Man’s Sky How to Name Your Discoveries:

Every planet in No Man’s Sky has variety of animals and plants. The universe in No Man’s Sky is procedurally generated, so there may be some similarities in different planets but all your discoveries will be counted as separate ones. Just keep your eyes pealed for small differences, or just keep the Analysis Visor ready at all times. As discovering new species will need a Analysis Visor, we presume that you have not scrapped your Analysis visor.

First of all you need to find a unique animal or plant that hasn’t been already discovered and named yet. When you find one then press and hold the R2 button to open your Analysis Visor.Hold your visor over the subject you would like to name. Make sure to scan every animal in the pack, because even if they all look similar, there is a good chance that they’ll count as a separate discovery because of minor variations. Once the scan is finished, it’ll identify a scientific name for the scanned subject.
