Origen of Star Names, i.e. Nu Serpentis (Nehushtan)?

May 26, 16:29 EDT

What source does Skysafati use for star names? I noticed that Sky Safari 5 for iPhone uses star names approved by the IAU (International Astronomical Union), which is very cool and up to date, but Sky Safari 5 also has names in addition to those approved by the IAU 2017, for example Nu Ser.( Nehushtan), I can find no other source that recognizes v Serpentis (Nu Ser.) as Nehushtan. What other source does Skysafari use for a stars proper names?
