The news feed in the The Pod Bay links to NASA Spacelfight's 2020-11-08 news item Introducing China’s new commercial rocket, Ceres-1.
China’s latest commercial rocket, the Ceres-1 (Gushenxing-1) launch vehicle, has conducted its maiden launch this weekend, orbiting the Tianqi-11 satellite.
Chinese company Galactic Energy conducted the launch on Saturday morning at 07:12 UTC from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center.
The Galactic Energy, also designated Beijing Xinghe Dongli Space Technology Co. Ltd., is one of several private Chinese companies that is developing orbital launch vehicles – of small or medium cargo capacity – for the Chinese domestic and international launch markets.
At present, Galactic Energy’s research and development team have more than 100 employees, and 90 percent of the staff have more than five years’ working experience in the spaceflight industry.
Transliteration from Chinese Pinyin to English or other Romanized forms is ambiguous; many Chinese characters can have the same sound, and Pinyin without the tone "ambiguifies" by an additional factor of four per character (syllable) , so while one (not me!) might be able to guess what Gu Shen Xing might be, it's impossible to be certain. (4 x 4 x 4 = 64)
In other words, you can't type pinyin like "Gu Shen Xing" or "Gushenxing" into a search engine or translator and expect to find the correct Chinese. It might try to guess, but it's a one-to-many mapping.
In other words, having an additional Romanized name using an alphabet instead of romanized equivalent is probably extremely helpful for a rocket looking for international customers.
Question: Is the Ceres-1 the first Chinese spacecraft that was given an official Romanized name? Have there been previous commercial rockets launched to space that have had one? Have any government or military launch-to-orbit rockets had an official Romanized name?
note: "Given an official Chinese name" would be by the rocket's owners or producers or by some official Chinese government body. Romanized names assigned by foreign organizations for their own use and convenience don't count for the purposes of this question.
